You know what I love about zoos???? You can visit someplace without having to travel very far. Yesterday some of us from Dallas Photo Walk group visited the Gulf Coast Region at the local zoo.
Jeffrey is a brown pelican, however he turned out to be a she. Her caretakers decided to keep her name.
I learned that those “bumps” on the pelican’s beak are grown in early spring to impress the females they hope to court.
