People have an inexplicable attraction to pelicans. Maybe its the way we can attach almost human characteristics to their actions. Whether cajoling for a snack, showing off for attention, or relaxing in the sunshine, Michael Maiden's portrayal of the brown pelican captures the innate qualities of the pelican that make it the darling of bird admirers.
