Is this California? The pelicans can get pretty tame out there. He looks retired and living off of handouts from fishermen. ;)

When I lived in San Diego, aboard my boat, I was at a marina that had a lot of fishing boats at it. And one old Brown Pelican that couldn't fly anymore. The guys on the boats would bring it fish from their runs, that they could not sell. That bird ate better than I did. His best friend was a female Rottweiler and those two would sit in the sun and sleep or groom each other. I wish I had had a camera then. It was the most astounding sight I had ever seen.
