    Just came across this. Wouldn't believe it if I hadn't seen it:

    Nature sure is a crazy thing sometimes!

    I wonder if that is common, or if that pelican was just a bit "off".

    Haven't watched it, but it doesn't surprise me. When I went to school in SF there was a vacant lot next to our building, and on several occasions I saw sea gulls gang up on, kill, and then eat pidgeons. Never would've believed it if I hadn't seen it. And all the other pidgeons just stood there, milling about as usual while one of their own was singled out. I was like, "Why don't you fly away you stupid pidgeons?!" but who knows what goes on in their bird brains. [​IMG]
