Enjoy watching these prehistoric-looking birds skim along the waves of the Las Gaviotas coastline and then splash into the ocean to snatch an unsuspecting fish.

The California Brown Pelicans measure about 4 feet in length and have a wingspan of just over 6.5 feet. They weigh about 8 pounds. The webbing between their toes makes them strong swimmers capable of plunging into the water and swimming after their prey.
