Banded Pelican Poses for Photos during Christmas Bird Count

This guy was rather tame as we approached Chapel Pond during the Christmas Bird Count.  Since he let us get so close, we were able to see that there was a band on his right leg, and Chris Snook, a bird-bander himself, took down the numbers to see if we could identify this particular bird.  We eventually drove off, but he or she was happy to pose in the meanwhile.
