odd couple

Somewhere in Idaho….

Idaho-4803I drove past this sight, but had to go back to figure out what it was…. Β on closer examination it was a bit strange to see the first two Pelicans on the left with a Cormorant each, sharing the clump they’re perched on. Altogether there are eleven American White Pelicans and seven Cormorants apparently taking a nap. If it weren’t for that fifth Pelican from the left showing his bill, I’m not sure I could have identified the white birds at all. This one you can zoom in on for a closer look. (click, then click again)

The things you see when you have a camera handy…. πŸ˜€

A wonderful bird is the Pelican.
His beak can hold more than his belly can.
He can hold in his beak
Enough food for a week!
But I’ll be darned if I know how the hellican?Β

  1. Thanks for going back and taking that shot – who would have thought they’d all be so comfy together πŸ˜‰ A family staple for overeating – I think I even mentioned it last night!

    • It’s always a tossup whether to backtrack and try to catch something like that. With the new compact Prius it’s so much easier to do… it also takes less room to pull off the highway. I’m utterly thrilled with it.
