CALIFORNIA BROWN PELICAN IN WINTER PLUMAGE – Japanese brush painting on traditional scroll 50″ long x 19″ wide.  Available at my Etsy Shop: NancyLeeArtByTheSea…



BEAUTIFUL CALIFORNIA BROWN PELICANS flying by always leave me breathless.  There are juvenile pelicans that really stand out against the bright green & red pouches as the pelicans transform into their winter breeding plumage.  Even their eyes change from brown to blue!  As they sit on the La Jolla Cove bluff soaking up the sun, I get a close up view of these magnificent birds.
