Very carefully! I’m doing research on pelican behavior for my next book, Dead Pelican. One of the more interesting facts I’ve uncovered is that many young pelicans don’t make it to adulthood because they are unable to feed themselves. Pelicans are large birds and must catch a lot of fish to survive. Some pelicans, however, don’t quite get the hang of fishing, or fail to learn when separated from their parents. There are some humans who try to step in and help pelicans learn to fish. Here’s a very cool video of one such man.
