No 1. (right) --- "I'm telling you I saw fish. Get your sacs a yapping and stretching or you are not going to be ready. I'm not missing this. You guys just stand around it you want to."
No 2. (middle) -- " I don't see know fish. If you woke me up for nothing. I'm going to push you in the water under the ferry boat when it pulls up. "
The scene is down by the Canal Street-Algiers ferry landing in New Orleans where these guys (brown Pelicans) have become regulars of late. I think they have discovered that when the ferry pulls in and uses its propellers to hold it still against the current as it docks, it pushes a lot of good eats up stream. They lay around in a crouched position but get up and start yawning and stretching their necks as soon as the ferry boat gets near.
Check out this web site for some fun stuff you didn't know about Brown Pelicans -- including how they use their large gular sac.
