Hard to Swallow
In between tides at the flats this morning made for deeper water. Among the normal mix of herons and egrets, the pelicans arrived to fish for a meal. This brown pelican was processing its latest catch. You can see the outline of the fish in its pouch. Just for information, the thick layer of skin in a pelican's mandible is officially known as the "gular pouch"
