Pelican on a pole

Seems nearly every time I’m in town I stumble upon a Brown Pelican doing something out of the ordinary. Actually, it only seems unusual to me but probably quite routine for the pelican.

This time, I was down by the harbor in the Naval District area when I noticed a lone pelican precariously perched atop a poop piled pole protruding awkwardly from the water (try saying that five times).

Not certain of his intentions, but fairly sure it must of had something to do with either eating or sleeping or both, since, like me, these are pretty important things in my daily schedule.

Of course, he may simply have noticed my camera and was quick to strike a pose. Which would really mean he was a purposely posing pelican precariously perched atop a poop piled protruding pole!!!
