Pelican Attacks Dolphin at Hudson Beach

Pelican and Dolphin Fight

I had the pleasure to visit Florida’s Nature Coast a couple of weeks ago. While in that area, I always try to visit the little area called “Hudson Beach.” Hudson and its beach is on the Gulf of Mexico in Pasco County, and is a nice little community. This time, while strolling the walkway along the beach, I spotted an aggressive pelican going after a dolphin in the small bay there. Here are several photos that I shot of that encounter.

I’m disappointed that I never got to see or photograph the dolphin’s head. However, a close look will show that dolphin’s fin and body.

Here are several more photos of that pleasant little area. If you ever get a chance to visit, I think you will enjoy yourself. There are some good restaurants in the area.

  1. I used to live right there on the water and watched these dolphins multiple times per week. I saw this fighting between them a few times! Crazy! I believe this poor dolphin has a broken or injured fin. For a while, it was bent considerably. Hudson beach is a beautiful secret. Thank you!
