#313-365 Swim

Much like their flying method, I think these guys epitomize No Nonsense swimming best, so serene above water but you just know they are peddling like the clappers underwater. Still I wonder why we never see Young Pelicans, are they born old aged just like politicians?

That is one of the whitest pelicans I've ever seen! He looks very happy, bobbing along.

Well, that's a good question. We do see "juveniles" but they are just as big as adults. Guess they don't leave nest till they are huge. Great take on theme.

Hmmmm....I never thought about why we never see baby pelicans, now you have me wondering!

Hi Ron,

Such a silly looking bird! As the poem goes:
A wonderful bird is the pelican,
His mouth can hold more than his belly can,
He can hold in his beak,
Enough food for a week.
I'm damned if I know how the hell he can!
