I held an injured pelican once and for such a bulky creature it was surprisingly light, as though made of balsa wood and varnished canvas.
The pelicans are back in the Keys flapping around just at the time when more and more cars with front number plates are starting to show up too.
Taking off and landing is a piece of cake for these flyers.
One hopes the private planes that will be arriving in ever greater numbers soon follow their example.
