You know, Minnie, you won't be able to see this behavior again without hearing the song. You're welcome. Matt

Pelicans are social birds so it's hard to get them alone. And ya, it's pouch yoga... Pelican Grace - Did You Know?
"Pelicans perform strange-looking exercises to stretch and maintain their pouch in a brand of pelican yoga. They will gape, holding their mouths wide open. In another pose, they point the bill straight up to the sky, stretching the pouch. Or most evocatively, a bird will turn its pouch completely inside out by forcing it over its breast."

Great images! S-
