This pelican was quite a friendly character on our visit to Avalon on Catalina Island. He liked to sit on that little shelf and wait for people to feed the fish in the water below him, then he’d swoop down and have an easy lunch. We were able to stand right next to him for about 10 minutes and he didn’t mind us a bit. At one point a women came over and gently stroked his back feathers which he didn’t much like. He flapped his wings a bit but he didn’t fly away. Just one of the many wonderful moments we had during our weekend in Avalon (Sept.2007).
