I'm easy game for talkative and sometimes annoying wildlife watchers that come and go as I stand for hours waiting to get that one shot. I felt like this pelican last week until I stepped back and listened. A lonesome 90 year old guy needed to talk so I listened. The next morning I found this 2 minute video on YouTube: Billy Thompson
I discovered a treasure more important than any pelican story that evening. I'll come back for the birds another day and if someone wants to chat, the birds can wait still another day.
