A wonderful bird is the pelican
His bill will hold more than his belican.
He can take in his beak
Food enough for a week,
But I'm damned if I see how the helican.
~Dixon Lanier Merritt

Some of our neighborhood feathered friends. I never get tired of watching for them. They usually appear when I'm far away from my camera, but sometimes I get lucky!

This guy almost looked like he was posing for me. He let me get pretty close. I think he's done this before. If you click on the picture to make it larger, you'll see that the pelican has toenails! I never knew that.

Caught these immature herons on a walk.

I wonder if they are siblings?
