Sneak Preview of Pelican Banding

Naked Pelican Chick

Just got in, have taken two showers and soaked my fingernails in acetone and I can still smell pelican on my fingers. I don't think I'll be eating sushi or chicken for the next few days--ugh. Anyway, must take shower number three and eat something heavily spiced (lots of garlic) to get weird taste out of my mouth (no I didn't eat any pelicans but the whole smell of the rookery seems to have permeated every available pore in my body--inside and out). More photos coming soon and I must say, I think I got some SWEET footage for a video Birdzilla segment. My only concern is that with the wind and my overzealous finger on the zoom button, it may resemble an episode of Laugh In.
