Feeding time at the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary

This wild great blue heron found a snack to eat. I think it was a piece of crab that was dropped on the ground.

A permanent resident at the sanctuary. This pelican had no problem swallowing the fish he was fed by hand. I'm sure he wouldn't be able to scoop up the fish on his own.

Snowy egrets were getting a handout as well.
Lots of good eats at the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary. Even the wild birds come in for a handout. Occasionally they are able to get a bite when someone drops something. When I was there one of the volunteers were feeding the pelicans in the aviary and I noticed the above had his pouch unattached. It must have been caught on a hook. He seemed to be getting along pretty well there.
