Pelicans are extremely flexible.  I caught this one rotating his beak clockwise from 9 to 5 o’clock.  I just happened to catch it at 12 o’clock.

Why?  I don’t know, but I saw several of them doing it.  It looked more like a stretching exercise than anything else, maybe keeping its gullet flexible for the next “bucket” of fish.

Oh, I have a dentist appointment next week.

Thought for the Day:                                             A wonderful bird is the pelican                              His beak can hold more than his belican              He can hold in his beak                                            Enough food for a week                                        But I’ll be darned if I know how the hell helican                Dixon Lanier Merritt
