I love pelicans there is something so awesome about animals that defy stereotypes or at least those I've created for them - see in my head birds are meant to be small (canary sized) that chirp and fly around daintily. Pelicans on the other hand are huge, unrealistically sized and I'm sure, if you were ever attacked by one as a kid would have left a lingering scar. I wasn't attacked as a kid so anytime I see a pelican I just get gleefully happy - this pelican was extra cool too as he really didn't give two hoots about humans or our proximity all he wanted to do was steal the fish that little boy had caught :p
He ended up giving up in the end, too many guards around :p
I thought everyone was a bit mean, personally I would of given him some fish!
