Pelicans Released

I recieved one juvenile Pelican from NAS Oceana and one from Va Bch SPCA.  One was much larger than the other.  The larger always protect the smaller one.  I'd open the cage door and it would always place itself between myself and the smaller Pelican.

I released them both yesterday 9-13-2011 at Norfolk Botanical Gardens.  They both swam off together and as you can see they stayed close to each other.
