Was It Something I Said?!
This past weekend I noticed a brown pelican that was calmly floating along in the salt marsh enjoying a pleasant afternoon. As I approached, it seemed to be giving me kind of a wary look and then proceeded to vacate the premises. I don’t believe I made any comments which could be construed as being rude, and normally the pelicans don’t care much about what’s going on around them. Sometimes I think a marching band could come through and they would just simply continue on fishing.
It can’t be that there was something about my appearance that it didn’t care for. The alligators seem to like me OK enough, you would think the pelicans would be happy to see me as well.
He was probably leaving anyway to go look for his friends. Yes, that must be it…
