Today I had the opportunity to spend an hour inside the bird cages at Peace River Wildlife Center. The birds in these areas are too severely injured to be re-introduced into the wild. They seem accustomed to human presence in their environment. These pelicans were scooping up water in their bills and spraying it on their bodies, followed by a vigorous  shaking of feathers.
