One of my favorite birds to watch is the pelican. I probably wouldn’t feel the same way if I was a fisherman. This group was hassling a fishing boat off Captiva Island.I think the fishermen would have shot them if they thought they could get away with it. Apparently they like to eat the bait.
Watching Pelicans fly is like watching fish in a tank for me. It makes me happy and lowers my blood pressure. When they skim over the surface looking for fish it reminds me of a scene in Doctor Strangelove. George C. Scott is describing how low “his boys” can fly a B-52 under the radar.
