I named this Ira’s Pelican because my friend Ira Yawnick who is a wonderful photographer took this photo while hanging off the side of a Clift. This bird is a baby Brown pelican. I fell in love with the colors on the bird and the crazy feathers on its head. When older they are brown and I had never seen a baby Brown pelican before.
