"birds of a feather..."

The brown pelican is a warm weather species that thrives near coasts and on islands. The California brown pelican generally uses the rocky islands along the California coast for their group, or "colonial," nest sites. Brown pelicans rely in part on the actions of marine predators such as sharks, salmon, and dolphins to force schools of fish to the surface where the pelicans can catch them.
