The Pelican and the Gull . . .

Giving flight lessons? The American Pelican (Pelicanus erythrorhynchos)
and an immature gull . . .

The gull seemed unable to fly so perhaps it just
fledged . . .

The pelican floated beside it for maybe a quarter mile before
leaving the little guy to his destiny . . .

Several hundred pelicans nearby . . .
