Max on... Pelican

HH went to have breakfast with Uncle Jim at Grill's at Port Canaveral and looky-look what she brought home.  No, no such luck, ...she didn't actually bring the pelican home. But there were a bunch of them out on the boats in front of the restaurant, so she brought home this picture of one and lots more pictures too... Some of them flying, but I'll save those for some other time.


Anyway, she said that this guy is much bigger than Bugsy or Knuckles and maybe bigger than both of them put together ...  When they take off, they do look a little bottom heavy, but after a little umpity- upmpties... they make it.... Anyway, just thought you might like to see Mr. Pelican's cousin up close and personal.

It's Valentine's Eve today... are you ready for all the hearts that'll be floating around cyberspace tomorrow..?  Time to get ready.

Have a great day.!!!

No doubt this guy could protect the cords!

Great shot! Mom loves seeing a couple of them flying together - and then maybe swooping down for a fish!

That bird is huge! Don't get near him, he might like kitties!

Drools and licks,

I love pelicans. They are just so HUGE and other-worldly looking. Thanks for sharing this picture.

Happy early Valentine's Day.

Your pal, Pip

My goodness, I wish I got that Bird-TV channel up this way!

Sparkle said...

For some reason, I don't think a pelican would taste good.

Mariodacat said...

Ohhh - that brings back memories. M used to love watching the Pelicans when she lived in that area a million years ago. Hope HH had a lovely day.

I'm ready sweet ones! Mom remembers a pelican flying over her car on the Melbourne Causeway back when, and it was not a happy thing for her. She had to pull into a gas station and ask for a hose to hose the car off. Man, that smelled so horribly oily fishy.
