December 14, 2010: White Pelican on Sloans Lake
White Pelican, Denver, CO

White Pelican on Sloans Lake: This pelican, near Denver, Colorado, has an interesting growth on its beak. I wonder if it is natural or an injury or a parasite of some sort?

Excellent sleuthing, Jerry. This site can offer more than a pretty picture to look at; it can educate as well. It invites us to marvel at the surprises to be found in nature.

Weird, wonder what the purpose of the horn is. Just to attract mates?
Jerry Musgrove from Colorado about 9years ago said:
According to Wiki: In the breeding season, there is a laterally flattened "horn" on the upper bill, about one-third the bill's length behind the tip. This is shed off after the birds have mated and laid their eggs.
