A sleepy pelican!
The pelican flew to the playground late in the afternoon after all the students were gone and took a nap under the ramada! Pelicans are not native to Southern Arizona. One of the other teachers called the Wildlife Foundation and they picked up the pelican. During the summer the pelicans migrate from Mexico to the coast of California and because of the strong winds from the monsoons they sometimes get off track. The pelicans that get off track in their flight end up dehydrated and the Wildlife Foundation nurse them back to health and then take them to San Diego to release them.
It was nice to see all the students again. It's amazing how much they grow during the summer!
