Keep your head down

It was chilly. The pelicans tucked their heads away and shivered!

Here are two headless ones.

Did I mention it was also windy. The pelicans were gathered in this corner of the swamp. Perhaps it was marginally warmer. Having been on a dairy farm, I noticed that cows always turn their backs to the wind. Apparently horses face the wind. There are lots of ideas about wht this is so. I noticed in this picture the pelicans all faced the same way, well all except one. He hadn’t got the memo. Or maybe he was keeping lookout. When my guinea fowl are eating there always seems to be one, not eating, keeping a lookout for predators.

I had something in common with this little guy. We were both crouched over to stay warmer.
