Brown Pelican – Rubbin’ Its Noggin


Even birds get an itch they need to scratch.  But how?

Not a problem for this Brown Pelican!

Brown Pelican – Rubbing/Scratching Its Head
That had to feel good!


Out of that series, I’m sharing one of the photos again with a closer crop.  It deserved a caption…..

“Good Grief”


I’m sure there’s more captions perfect for this silly shot!

  1. Fantastic pictures! My what moves that bird made, just to scratch an itch. I’m almost surprised he didn’t lift a foot to do the scratching, as I have seen so many herons and egrets do. I guess the feet aren’t long enough?? Thanks for sharing.

  2. All are excellent photos, Donna! Super sharp and perfect color.
    Of course, the guy reminded me of myself, after I eat an icy “slurpy” too fast! 🙂

    • Thank you! After 10 years of photographing them, the birds have taught me patience, which was something I needed to learn. I think egrets and herons can out-patience me though! 🙂

  3. Caption game is on point Donna. I like seeing wildlife through your eyes. The last picture of the pelican is so relatable.
