Posing Pelican

Posing Pelican

On the same morning I saw my first reddish heron,  I found a pelican nesting site nearby. It was in the backwaters of Sarasota Bay, near a public boat dock surrounded by mangroves.  Early morning, active birds, including heron and egrets, and very noisy.

Birds were everywhere.  Locals told me the wild birds put up with the boat dock activity to get easy pickings when the fishermen return to clean their fish.

This pelican seemed most proud of himself, like he had a good hair day and might get lucky with the ladies.

Thought for the DayNever underestimate a man that overestimates himself.                                                                                                                                    Franklin Roosevelt
