Pelican with an Itch, Pacifica, California, June 2011

The pelicans here aren't doing well. There is not enough fish and the birds suffer from hunger and many starve. This pelican was sitting on the pier, letting people get close, which usually never happens here. Someone fed the poor guy a large fish, which it ate. The bird was very lethargic and barely moved for three hours. Eventually the pelican became a bit more animated, and even scratched itself. Finally it took off and flew towards the south.
