Caption: A juvenile Brown Pelican whizzing by. These birds are a common sight now, but that wasn't the case years ago. By 1903, so many brown pelicans had been killed by hunters and fisherman that Theodore Roosevelt set aside an island off Florida's east coast as a wildlife refuge for the bird. It was the first of many refuges now maintained worldwide.
