Pelican Parade

February 22, 2011

This scoop of brown pelicans was our constant companion at the campground in Grassy Key. Watching them fish in the ocean and cavort on the dock was every bit as captivating as watching the sun go down over Florida Bay. I didn’t see “Pelicans” listed as a campground amenity, but I think they should be.

    So it’s a scoop and not a flock?

      Flock is also correct, as is ‘squadron,’ ‘pod,’ ‘raft,’ ‘rookery’ and a few others. I happened to like “scoop” the best.

      Isn’t language great?
