Pelicans play in downtown Pensacola @ Palafox Pier~

Pelicans Bathing in Downtown Pensacola~
This majestic bird is worth taking a second look at!
I was riding around town and stumbled upon these Pelicans perched on some posts over near Palafox Pier in downtown Pensacola. Palafox Pier is a fantastic spot to bird watch, for an afternoon picnic, and for a sunrise early in the morning!

It was about 5pm when I caught them resting along these old dock posts in one of the inlets off Palafox Place. I assume they come in the for the night to sleep as that's the pattern I have observed.

Just how much does Pensacola love the Pelican? 

  • The annual celebration for New Years Eve is dubbed the Pensacola Pelican Drop and they drop a HUGE lit pelican from the sky!
  • Our old baseball team was named the Pensacola Pelicans.
  • There are over 40 bigger-than-life-sized Statues of Pelicans spread across downtown!
