Now that you mention it, Jim...I recall that pelican did take a nip at Co-pilot's hand when she tried to pet him.

Well.....I did warn her that petting a pelican was probably not a good thing to do, but she comes from the Disney-world style of approaching animals.

I do what the voices in my tackle box tell me.

I've actually seen them in Tucson. They stop at a very small lake in a neighborhood park, on their way south. What a site! White pelicans, in Tucson. Thought I was going to give up the tequila 'till I did a little research.

Fond a young one blown off course by the monsoon in Skull Valley. Picked him up and took him to the local zoo. He enjoyed the air conditioning in the truck but he only rewarded me with lice that crawled like a army all over my body. They are very flat and cannot be picked off. Kinda like those South American flat bugs that mad Magazine put on their pages that only moved when you closed the book up. Luckily they can only survive on the Brown Pelican. A quick shower and put my clothes in the hot dryer.
