California Views: Brown Pelicans At Rodeo Lagoon

“Sunday Morning” takes us among Brown Pelicans at California’s Rodeo Lagoon near Sausolito. Videographer: Lee McEachern.

The brown pelican is a bird of the pelican family, Pelecanidae, one of three species found in the Americas and one of two that feed by diving into water. 

Rodeo Lagoon is a coastal lagoon located in the Marin Headlands division of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, which is in southern Marin County, California. This brackish water body is separated from the Pacific Ocean by a sand bar that forms Rodeo Beach.
