s you might have gleaned from the cover of this issue and one of our feature stories, I love birds. That’s one of my favorite things about Florida. I took the cover photo a few years ago at the Stick Marsh, an important rookery for Roseate Spoonbills among others. I’m just a hobbyist with a camera but I adore getting a lucky shot of a beautiful bird here and there. This was actually an easy shot because these Spoonbills are not shy. In fact, they’re a gregarious bunch and, as you can see, they don’t mind posing for photos. Birds play a critical role as caretakers of our planet and maybe I admire them so much because of the way they go about that business, despite the never-ending obstacles we humans keep throwing at them. Springtime in Florida is full of natural splendor and a perfect time to reflect upon the importance of our ecological resources and surroundings. Nature nurtures the soul and sustains life for all of us. I hope that some of the articles in this issue serve as a reminder that we can all be better environmental stewards.

The Plight of the

Cormorant

D

ouble-crested Cormorants are water birds that are widely distributed throughout North America and abundant here in Florida. They swim like ducks, sit low in the water like loons, and can dive to 25 feet or more. From a distance, they are often confused with the related Anhinga. Both are diving birds and can often be seen sunning with wings spread to dry out. But closer inspection reveals beautiful hues of taupe and brown plumage, a brilliant orange patch of facial skin, and aquamarine eyes that sparkle like jewels.

Double-crested Cormorant

During breeding season, they sprout white crests that look a bit like ears. A few decades ago, the widespread use of DDT (Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane) and other harmful insecticides nearly wiped them out. After the U.S. began banning such chemicals, their numbers steadily increased and Cormorants became a conservation success story. So why on God’s not-so-green-earth has the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) issued permits to cull tens of thousands of these birds each year across 37 states as recently as 2017? They have no commercial value and they’re not in the least bit palatable because of their nearly exclusive diet, which is fish, which is also a clue to the answer. While cormorants are protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA) the FWS can issue Depredation Permits which entitle specific individuals, private organizations, and other federal and state agencies to lethally take a protected species. And so, they did, based on complaints of proliferating populations of the birds wreaking havoc (supposedly) on fish populations. The competition between anglers, both recreational and commercial, and fisheating birds is nothing new. Double-

crested Cormorants are considered pests to aquaculturists because of their intense predation on fishponds which can cause thousands of dollars in losses to farmers. But the science simply does not support the idea that they pose any significant threat to fish populations, commercial or otherwise. Thankfully, here in Florida, there is an extremely low cap on these permits, only 211 annually.

Why it Matters

The plight of the Double-crested Cormorant represents a microcosm of a much larger problem. Protected species under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act

(MBTA) of 1918 continually face threats from industry and greedy corporate polluters. It began with overhunting and poaching for the demand of feathers. But as industry evolved, along with man’s never ending pursuit of profit, the danger to bird populations has exploded. Oil company waste pits kill around 40 million birds a year alone. Add in oil spills, loss of habitat due to development, collisions with utility and other structures, pesticides, and electrocutions (yes you read that right), and the numbers jump up to almost a billion birds lost every year to industry in the U.S. If those numbers

aren’t bad enough, consider that the MBTA itself has recently faced threats of rollbacks that would worsen the situation. The attempts to erode the MBTA have not come to fruition but it's a slippery slope when politics and special interests start playing around with a law that serves a crucial role in protecting the planet.

We Need Birds, They Don’t Need Us

Migratory birds provide essential ecosystem services to humanity and we need them far more than they need us. They play an important role in pollination and create natural growth by spreading seeds. Birds can transform and maintain entire landscapes. They are a natural form of pest control, feeding on harmful insects and rodents that save the farming industry millions of dollars. A recent study has

shown that birds eat 400-500 million tons of insects a year. Vultures are scavengers that play a valuable role in nutrient cycling. Able to rapidly dispose of large carcasses, vultures act as public health wardens and street cleaners. By consuming decomposing animals, they reduce the risk of contamination by pathogens. Over its lifetime, a single vulture provides waste disposal services worth around $11,600. Migrating birds also inspire science and serve as important indicators for the health of the planet. They respond quickly to changing weather patterns and can provide early warning signs for climate change related issues. Bird watching contributes 41 billion dollars a year to the U.S. economy and our own Treasure Coast is a national hot spot where locals and visitors look forward to the annual arrival of American white pelicans, marvel at the enormous sandhill cranes, and take photo adventures to catch that coveted shot of the stunning roseate spoonbills. Yet, for all they do for our planet and way of life, birds ask for nothing in return. If they could, they would likely ask simply to be left alone. In fact, that is true for nearly all wildlife. Nature has a way of taking care of itself and does so much more efficiently without the interference of human beings.

Treasure Coast Foodies Review By Thomas Miller, The Treasure Coast Foodie

Crab E Bills – Restaurant Review I’ve always been curious to learn more about this place, but it seems like every time I’m in the area or driving by it was closed. I decided it was time to find out more about it, so I reached out to the manager and officially scheduled my visit. The building where Crab E’s stands today has a long and storied history in this area. It’s been an auto repair shop, it was a front for bootlegging illegal liquor during prohibition in the early 1900’s, and it’s been several different eateries. The property the old building stands on is part of the Stan Mayfield Working Waterfronts Forever grant program. This grant acknowledges the importance of traditional seafood harvesting in Florida. The grant funds were used to acquire parcels of land to be directly used for the purpose of commercial harvest of marine or saltwater organisms by state licensed commercial fisherman, thus made it a perfect location for a seafood market. “Crab E” Bill Tiedge opened the market and restaurant as we know it today back in 2011. Sadly, he passed away in September 2019, but his family plans to keep the place open and his dream alive! Now let’s jump right in and see what this place has to offer and what I had to eat! “Not just any Cheeseburger” – The burger is grilled, then topped with your

choice of American or Swiss cheese, Applewood smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion, and served with French fries, cucumber salad, and a pickle. The burger was perfectly cooked and still quite juicy. The bacon was thick and added a little crunch and smoky flavor when taking a bite.

Blackened Mahi Fish Tacos – Served in a flour tortilla, the tacos are topped with onions, tomato, shredded cheese, and cilantro. It was served with a side of their housemade chips and coleslaw. The fish was fresh and had good flavor. The blackened seasoning only added flavor and

no heat. If you like things a little bit spicier, then I suggest you top them with their Cajun remoulade sauce for an extra kick!

Fried Wild Gulf Shrimp – The shrimp were breaded and fried till golden brown. Side dishes were sweet potato fries and cucumber salad. The two sauces on the side were tarter sauce and cocktail. The shrimp were perfectly fried, nice and crunchy, yet still tender inside. I’m not usually a fan of cocktail sauce, but this one was sweet, with just the right amount of horseradish flavor.

Volume 26 • Issue 1

Grilled Mahi with a Pineapple Salsa – The fish was grilled to perfection, and just flaked apart when cutting into it. The pineapple salsa added so much fresh flavor to the dish! Sides were rice and asparagus spears. Crab E Bills Seafood is located at 1540 Indian River Drive in the heart of Sebastian’s downtown waterfront. There is plenty of parking and the restaurant has beautiful river front views. (772) 388-2727 Tuesday-Saturday, 10:00am-4:30pm Sunday, 11:00am-4:00pm www.crabebills.com

Treasure Coast Real Estate Update By Luchian Bercea, Realtor®

Luchian Bercea is a licensed Florida Realtor® with Dale Sorensen Real Estate. Learn more at www.LuchianBercea.com

F

lorida’s red hot real estate market is attracting a lot of attention these days. It’s a stark contrast to last April when things came to a temporary halt but by the end of the third quarter, the market came roaring back. By the third quarter of 2020, tales of inventory lasting only a matter of minutes upon listing, multiple offers, and bidding wars were ubiquitous as a surge of out-ofstate buyers descended upon the Sunshine State amid a mass migration of nearly a thousand people a day to Florida. Affordable homes, low taxes, and high ratings for happiness and desirability are just some of the reasons why a recent U.S. News & World Report put 13 Florida cities among 2020-2021 top 25 best places to retire. That coupled with the ever-changing landscape of the job market including increased remote working arrangements, has drawn significant numbers of buyers to our area. Inventory remains low statewide. In the single-family existing home category, there was only a 1.8-month supply in December of 2020. Condos were at an approximate four-month supply. In Indian River County,

the median time from listing to contract status was down by 50 percent over the previous year. St. Lucie County and Martin Country reported similar numbers. Limited inventory and high demand have intensified an already competitive market. Despite the current inventory shortage, this is the busiest market the Treasure Coast has seen in years and values are soaring. And though conditions may favor sellers right now, interest rates are historically low, making it an optimal time to buy for those who need financing. According to Freddie Mac, the average interest rate for a 30-year fixed mortgage is at 2.68 percent, significantly lower than the 3.72 percent during the same period last year. Most importantly, if you need to buy or sell right now, this is no time to go it alone. A skilled real estate professional is a must in a market like this. Real estate agents can monitor inventory more closely and quickly to help you hop on the right home as soon as it is listed. For sellers, a good Realtor® will make sure your property is priced appropriately, help you navigate multiple offers, inspections, contingencies, and ultimately get you the best value from your home from a suitably qualified buyer.

Spring Fishing Report By Captain Charlie Conner

S

pring has arrived bringing lots of windy days to the area. Utilize the winds to your advantage to get the best fishing opportunities. Warmer weather will bring water temperatures up into the 80’s. Fishing is always good on the Treasure Coast so get out and enjoy! Sheepshead, drum and snapper will be along channel edges and docks and willing to take a live shrimp. Snook fishing will pick up around the inlets, bridges and docks. Live pilchards are a favorite bait in March. Mackerel, bluefish, jacks and many other predators will be coming in with the tides and feeding around the inlets and channels of the river. Small shiny lures work best for these fish. Look for redfish to be around mangroves and docks. A DOA shrimp is always a good choice for reds. Trout will be moving onto the shallow grass flats as the sun warms things up. Try a DOA Deadly Combo or live shrimp on a popping cork to locate trout. Pompano are in the river and along the surf and willing to take a Doc’s Goofy Jig, shrimp or sand fleas. They usually can be found in channels and deeper parts of the flats during the spring. We have had great success on croakers the past few years. There will be nice sized fish in the river and along the beaches feeding with whiting. They are fun to catch and very good on the table! Winter wasn’t so bad even though we complain about it. Living in Florida spoils you! This is a good time to of year to check equipment. Both fishing and the boat (if you own one) should be checked a few times a year to make sure everything

is in good working order. Some of these windy days will provide a good chance to check rods, reels, and safety gear for later in the spring when the winds settle down and the best fishing weather of the year arrives. As always, remember, fishing is not just another hobby....it's an ADVENTURE!! Good Fishing and Be Safe, Captain Charlie Conner

How Recycling Works

T

oday the ocean is already an unwilling host to more than 165 million tons of plastic and studies by major research firms supported by the World Economic Forum predict that by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the world’s oceans. This should give us pause. A world without healthy oceans is simply not sustainable. The state of Florida has a goal of achieving a 75% recycling rate by the year 2024 but is currently falling way short of that goal. Americans are among the world’s worst recycling contaminators and our area is no exception. Florida experiences an average of 30 percent contamination in curbside and residential recycling statewide and adds $100 million in annual costs. In all three Treasure Coast counties, the challenges are similar. The biggest offender is food contamination- oil-laden pizza boxes, and unwashed plastic containers and cans. Next up are plastic bags, plastic wrappings, and Styrofoam. Add things like hoses, electronics, cords, clothing, and the occasional bowling ball or something silly like that, and you wind up with a whole lot of garbage that is not only not recyclable, but also jams and breaks sorting machines, causes injury to workers and ruins entire loads of otherwise good recyclables. So, let’s look at an overview of how single stream recycling really works. Also known as co-mingled recycling, this relatively new process relieves people from having to separate items by material type at the initial

collection site, meaning your neighborhood collection container or your curbside carts. Refuse is then brought to a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) where it is sorted. This is done with a combination of human workers and clever machinery that handle the separation process as follows: • All material is unloaded and placed on a conveyor. • Non-recyclable items are manually sorted and removed by workers. • The material moves to a triple-deck screen. • Items too heavy or light, such as cardboard, containers, and paper, are removed. • Heavier containers drop to the bottom level, while lighter items head to the second level. • Another screen breaks glass containers for the safety and convenience of the workers. • The remaining material passes under a powerful magnet to remove tin and steel cans. • All the while, staff must monitor for specific commodities that may still have passed through. • A reverse magnet called an "eddy current" causes aluminum to fly off the conveyor and into a bin. • Workers separate cardboard, newsprint, and office paper, and drop each piece into a bunker below. • Once all the material is separated, it's baled and shipped to recycling companies for processing. The concept of single stream recycling should, in a perfect world, work well. Of course, it’s not a perfect world but that doesn’t mean we can’t do better. Do your part by practicing the four Rs. RETHINK the consequences your action or inaction will have on the planet and REDUCE your consumption of disposables. REUSE by considering new purposes for products you already have, and, most importantly, RECYCLE according to the guidelines.

The Tides are Turning for Turtles 2020 Treasure Coast Nesting Numbers Leatherbacks Martin: 370 St. Lucie: 72 Indian River: 60

Green Sea Turtles Martin: 681 St. Lucie: 122 Indian River: 496

Loggerheads Martin: 4,666 St. Lucie: 2,219 Indian River: 4,774 (Ecological Associates Inc.)

D

id you know that roughly 90 percent of sea turtle nesting happens on Florida beaches? And here on the Treasure Coast, roughly 35 miles of our beaches are critical nesting sites for three of the worlds seven species of sea turtles. Green and Loggerhead turtles are considered threatened and Leatherback turtles are endangered. But our stretch of coastline has been good to turtles and over the last few years their numbers have increased dramatically. Last year both Green and Leatherback nesting nearly doubled in numbers in all three Treasure Coast counties. Loggerheads are the most prolific nesters in our area and still surpassed the previous year’s numbers only halfway through the 2020 season. Some think that the temporary beach closures last summer may have encouraged the numbers. While it’s true

that there was less human interference on the beaches at the time, it’s unlikely to have had much to do with overall nesting increases other than a temporary boost. Sea turtles take up to 30 years to mature so what we are seeing is more likely an indicator of world-wide conservation efforts and awareness. Nesting season on the Treasure Coast typically runs from March through October. Yet the first nest last year was laid by a leatherback in early February near Stuart on South Hutchinson Island, the earliest nest on record in the state according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Turtles don’t lay eggs every year so nesting seasons have on and off years. Last year was predicted to be an off year yet it still broke several records. That’s good news as we look forward to what this season will look like.

Do your part to make 2021 a great year for turtles! • Turn off the lights on beach facing property so hatchlings don’t lose their way. • Never approach or interfere with a turtle, especially at night or in the early morning hours (leave your flashlights and cameras at home). • Don’t dig holes or drive umbrellas into the sand anywhere near a marked nest. • Fill in holes, knock down sand castles etc. before you leave the beach. • Leave nothing on the beach but your footprints. • If you see nesting turtles or hatchlings that appear to be struggling, call the FWC hotline at 888-404-3922.

VBMA’s Spring Exhibits Celebrate Light and Nature

Railroad Nostalgia, 2012, Artist Proof #2, plywood, LED lights, railroad tracks & ties, hardware, mirrors, 100 x 144 x 41.5 inches, Collection of the artist, Courtesy of C. Grimaldis Gallery

VBMA - The Vero Beach Museum of Art has two intriguing new exhibits this spring. Through April 25, 2021 in the Stark Gallery and Rotunda, the fascinating exhibition New Light by Korean-born Baltimore artist Chul Hyun Ahn features a dozen sculptural works and is an investigation of infinite space. Ahn uses light, color, and illusion to immerse his viewers in deep landscapes that bridge the gap between the conscious and subconscious. Chul Hyun Ahn constructs illusionistic environments, providing a space for contemplation. His sculptures urge the viewer to consider man’s boundless ability for physical and spiritual travel while exploiting notions of infinity and the poetics of emptiness. Ahn has translated geometric painting and the Zen practice of meditation into an art of light, space, and technology, enticing the viewer to look deeply into his frame of environments. His works create an optical and bodily illusion of infinity through apparent limitless space. The notion

of the void distinguishes his work amid the vast panoply of ways that artists have used light as a medium since the experiments of the 1920s, and particularly since the 1960s. Chul Hyun Ahn is an artist of international acclaim, with works in numerous public and private collections including the Margulies Collection at the Warehouse, the Hearst Foundation, Movado Group, the Jordan D. Schnitzer Family Foundation, Delaware Art Museum, Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art and the Palm Springs Art Museum. Ahn participated in Art Basel Hong Kong 2019 in collaboration with La Prairie, Switzerland. He lives and works in Baltimore, Maryland and has been represented by C. Grimaldis Gallery since 2002. Through May 2, 2021 visitors will also be awed by Poetry of Nature, Hudson River School Landscapes. This stunning array of over 40 paintings from the New-York Historical Society's collection by renowned Hudson River School artists, including Thomas Cole, Asher Durand, Albert

Bierstadt, Jasper Cropsey, John F. Kensett, and William T. Richards, will be on view for the first time at Vero Beach Museum of Art. Painted between 1818 and 1886, the works illustrate America's scenic splendor, as seen through the eyes of some of the country's most important painters. In the first decade of the 19th century, the Hudson River Valley's expansive landscapes and adjacent areas, such as the Catskills and the Adirondack Mountains, inspired an elite group of American artists known as the Hudson River School. Coming together under the influence of British émigré painter Thomas Cole (1801–1848), they shared a philosophy and appreciation for the natural landscape. Today their collective works are considered the first uniquely American art movement. In their idyllic depictions of the landscape, these artists conveyed not only America's majesty but an image of man living in harmonious balance with nature. The exhibition has been organized by the New-York Historical Society,

Volume 26 • Issue 1

which features one of the most renowned collections of Hudson River School paintings. Dr. Linda S. Ferber, the senior art historian & museum director emerita at New-York Historical and a leading authority on Hudson River School artists, is the curator for this extraordinary exhibition. In conjunction with the exhibition, the Vero Beach Museum of Art is organizing a wide array of public programs that will examine numerous aspects of this influential American art movement with noted speakers drawn from across the country. The Vero Beach Museum of Art is open Wednesday through Saturday, 10 am to 4:30 pm and Sunday 10 am to 4 pm. The Museum requires all visitors to adhere to social distancing guidelines that include all visitors aged 2+ to wear a face mask, and temperatures to be taken of all people entering the building.

Wildlife Guide Manatees

Manatees, often called sea cows, are peaceful, lumbering ocean creatures that are always a treat to see. These gentle giants are vegetarians and love warm water. Manatees are protected and need our care for survival. Look but don’t touch. Never feed or approach them. Boaters must take extra care. The most common cause of injury to manatees comes from boat propellers. When fishing, reel in your line when a manatee is near. Find out more about these wonderful creatures at the The Manatee Observation & Education Center in Fort Pierce and enjoy their observation area. Round Island Park in Vero Beach and Sebastian Inlet State Park in Sebastian are also great places to spot manatees.

Dolphins

Florida is home to several species of dolphins, and the most common is the bottlenose dolphin. Adults are typically six to 12 feet and their young may be less than a foot long. Dolphins give live birth in the spring and summer months and it is not uncommon to see the babies swimming closely alongside their mothers in the Indian River Lagoon. Dolphin calves nurse for up to 24 months and usually stay with their mothers for an average of three years. Dolphins live both inshore and offshore so they can be observed almost anywhere along the beach and the Indian River Lagoon but there are an estimated 300 resident bottlenose dolphins that live in the lagoon year-round. It is always a thrill to see them frolicking and fishing in our waters.

Sea Turtles

The Treasure Coast and surrounding beaches make up the largest and most significant sea turtle nesting sites in the country. Leatherback turtles are the first to arrive in early spring with Loggerheads following in April through July, and green turtles in late May through October. Sea turtles lay and bury their eggs on our beaches at night. After about two months, the hatchlings, as a group, make their way to the water’s edge following the light of the moon. Various groups offer beach walks to safely and legally observe nesting turtles. During hatchling season, the public can attend “turtle digs” where hatched nests are examined and documented by local experts. Sea turtles are protected and some are endangered so it is illegal to harass or interfere in any way with nests, nesting turtles or hatchlings. Turn off all beach facing lights during hatchling season so the little ones don’t get disoriented as they make their way to the ocean. Never approach a nesting female and please, leave nothing on the beach except your footprints.

Florida’s

warm climate and lush landscape is home to an abundance of wildlife that you won’t

want to miss.

On land and in the water, you’ll be amazed at what you can observe in a single day Treasure Coast. Learn more about some of the fascinating creatures that call Vero Beach, Sebastian and Fort Pierce home! on the

Florida Panthers

Florida panthers are large, light brown cats with a white muzzle, belly and chest. Their tails, ears and snout have black markings. While they are a unique subspecies of Puma concolor (also known as mountain lion, cougar, or puma), you’ll know the Florida Panther by its unique crooked tale and patch of fur on its back. Although most panthers are found south of Lake Okeechobee, they have been documented throughout the state. Florida Panthers are critically endangered and are the last of their subspecies still surviving in the eastern United States. Today there are less than 200 left in the wild. If you see a Florida panther, keep your distance and don’t harass, but be sure to report the sighting to 1-888-404-FWCC.

Bobcats

Are you one of the many that happened to catch the viral photo of the bobcat dragging a shark out of the surf in Vero Beach in 2015? Bobcats are alive and well on the Treasure Coast and widely distributed throughout Florida in deep forest, swamps, and hammock land. The bobcat is about twice the size of a domestic cat and has long legs, large paws and a short, or bobbed, tail. Bobcat sightings are often mistaken for panthers as they are the only other predatory “big cats” native to Florida. Though they are abundant, bobcats are stealthy and secretive so catching a glimpse of these beautiful animals is a rare gift.

Alligators

Florida is famous for many things, not the least of which is an abundant American Alligator population. Alligator observation opportunities are some of the most sought after experiences by visitors and residents alike. Treasure Coast populations reside mostly in fresh bodies of water and marsh areas, and the safest way to see them is with a licensed tour operator. We respect and appreciate our alligators. They are an important part of the Florida’s environment and play a valuable role in the ecology of our wetlands. Alligators are apex predators that help keep other aquatic animal populations in balance, so coexistence is essential. But they are dangerous animals and, while serious injuries to humans are rare, it is wise to use extreme caution in their presence. Never approach or feed an alligator under any circumstances. Swim only in designated areas and be sure to keep pets on a leash around fresh and brackish waters.

Treasure Coast Birding Guide

I SAW IT!

F

lorida's Treasure Coast is home to a multitude of bird species and part of the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail. Birding is fun! Use this handy checklist to learn about and keep track of birds that you are certain to see while exploring the area.

Roseate Spoonbill

☑ ☑ ☑

Sometimes mistaken for a flamingo, this gregarious wading bird is easily recognized for its bright pink plumage and big spoon shaped bill. There is a growing population of these beauties on the Treasure Coast due to rising water levels in the Everglades. Best seen around inland freshwater wetlands.

Snail Kite

This medium-sized bird of prey feeds almost exclusively on apple snails and, in the U.S., is found only in Florida. The species is locally endangered due to prolonged drought which affects its primary food source. Lucky observers may get a glimpse at inland marshlands and lakes.

Wood Stork

This hefty wading bird sports a football shaped body, scaly featherless head and long curved bill that are dead giveaways to its Jurassic ancestry. Their plumage is mostly white with black tail and wing feathers. They roost in trees and hang out around brackish wetlands, ponds and lakes.

Great Blue Heron

The largest of the North American Herons. At an average of four feet tall with a wingspan of around six feet, they are magnificent to see in flight. Named for their blue-gray plumage they have yellow bills and black head feathers. They adapt to both salt and freshwater environments and are abundant along the Indian River Lagoon.

☑ ☑ ☑ ☑

Sandhill Crane

Florida is home to two species of these enormous cranes which stand around four feet tall. The Greater visits from the north in the winter and the Lesser is a year-round resident. Almost always seen in pairs, they are gray in color with dark red crowns. Residents stick mostly around freshwater ponds and lakes.

Osprey

These large raptors can look like juvenile bald eagles with their white bellies and variegated brown underwings. They are actually a hawk found around salt water and feed primarily on fish which can commonly be seen clutched in their talons. Their nests are big stick structures often built on poles, channel markers and dead trees over open water.

Great Egret

This is the snow-white version of the Great Blue Heron. Other than color they’re nearly identical size and habitat and can observed in many of the same places. Some smaller birds can be mistaken for the Snowy Egret, but their yellow bills and black feet make them identifiable.

White Pelican

These migratory, all white pelicans, are twice the size of their brown cousins and breathtaking to behold. They are often referred to as the “original snowbirds” for their snow-white color and seasonal arrivals and departures. See them in large groups along the lagoon waterfront in Sebastian.
