Yes, you are correct, this is a nonbreeding Brown pelican. Nice photography!!

thank you, It helps when they beg on fishing piers...nice and close.  

Also, it was my understanding that male BP had the white heads while females were all brown, but as I was researching the above question I think I have that wrong.  Is it males and females are indistinguishable and the all brown ones are juveniles?

Correct!

If you would, please include sighting date and location on your future posts.  Thanks!
