Brown Pelicans

F/8.0, 1/250, ISO 100.

Brown Pelicans

California Week Two 

Why was the pelican kicked out of the hotel?

Because he had a big bill!

Interesting Fact: While the Brown Pelican is draining the water from its bill after a dive, gulls often try to steal the fish right out of its pouch—sometimes while perching on the pelican’s head. Pelicans themselves are not above stealing fish, as they follow fishing boats and hang around piers for handouts. ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Brown_Pelican/lifehistory )

      • I dug up the source and the complete verse. I remember hearing it when I was a little girl.
        “A wonderful bird is the Pelican.
        His beak can hold more than his belly can.
        He can hold in his beak
        Enough food for a week!
