After all the diving and filling that HUGE POUCH with water and then straining it out.
This is more often than not the result of all that hard work and effort. SNACK FOOD like you or I tossing back peanuts, I have seen a Pelican repeatedly dive into a school of finger mullet and consume enough that he was unable to get airborne. Or attack fishing lures thinking they are fish. If nothing else these big birds are entertaining and ALWAYS HUNGRY
