Opportunist Pelican

I was on a camping trip to the Southern Oregon coast and stopped in Bandon, Oregon, which is a very charming place for a variety of reasons. (More about this wonderful trip coming soon.) While sitting on the dock partaking in the highly recommended Fish and Chips, I watched an immature Brown Pelican, a very large bird, come circling low over the docks and land on a small shed. Surprisingly no one took much notice. I kept watching it as I finished my lunch, then wandered over to get a better look. The shed was a fish cleaning station. Salmon season had just opened and this Pelican decided to let others do her fishing for her.
