Was at Tempe Town Lake here in Phoenix, AZ and spoted this guy on the dock. Apparently it isn't totally uncommon to see in Arizona (behing that we don't have
a large body of saltwater near by).

He is also in his breeding plumage

I did a quick Google search, and Pelicans do indeed feed on Shad in freshwater.

Looks a bit underexposed.. and shooting in portrait would have emphasized the bird. Nice shot!
