I've always wanted to see the inside of a pelican's pouch when it was catching fish. Finally got my chance. The pelicans had discovered easy pickins at the lower spillway steps and they were fishing up a storm. The one on the left is getting rid of the water from its last scoop. The one with the pouch full of fish is in the middle of the toss and gulp maneuver. Nice haul. Have been told these fish are shad.
