Morning

I am a night owl, and can barely function before 10:00 in the morning. So the contortions of the middle pelican show how both my body and mind feel when I get out of bed in the morning. The perky brown pelican on the left pretty much shows my experience with morning people. “What’s the matter with you???? It’s morning, for goodness sake! You’re wasting it! What?? You haven’t had your coffee yet or something? Come on, we have fish to catch!!”

When you first look at a pelican, no matter how many you have seen, the first thing that you notice is their weird, uncanny beak. But equally impressive are their huge, powerful wings. (See the second photo above.)  An adult American White Pelican weighs 14 lbs, but has a wing span of 9 Feet. They are one of the largest North American birds.
