I’ve photographed this before, and it’s always funny.
You never think of a Pelican throwing back his head and stretching. Other birds do it, but because of their odd bill it’s just weird.
So there above is a full blown Pelican stretch…and he did make a little sound.
This bird was up in the rigging of a local shrimper (commercial fishing boat). While a lot of boat ‘stuff’ in the way it gave a little more interest too.

I believe PassingByPhoto.com had a few shots of this also.
