Pelicans have a seriously silly side, which Stephen McLaren captures in his photos of American white pelicans who’ve taken up residence in London’s St. James’s Park. I hope to be able to use several of Stephen’s photos in “Pelican Dreams.”

Strolling Pelican

We filmed another funny training session with Pardito at WildCare, where he did the “turn” successfully about half the time, but often looked quizzically at Mary and ending up nipping her leg.


In Cayucos, Morro is settling into his back-yard digs,  learning to play catch with Bill (the day I was there Bill threw celery stalks, then fish; Morro much preferred the fish). He knows he can’t fly, so instead he finds sticks to fling and tables to sit on while searching, literally, for his place in the sun.

Bill and Morro

A note: Lately we’ve been shooting full HD with a Canon camera, getting used to the settings and the fact that it records to files rather than film or tape. A whole new world.
