    I could catch it in a heartbeat, but won't. I'm not afraid of what of being snapped at by Sam. I'm afraid of being snapped by the man. I make it a habit not to grab wild animals the presence of others without authorization or a present need to for the safety of the animal.

    I have heard it isn't polite to ask a lady her age.

    Well, unless of course you suspect she's under 21.

    How old is Sam?
    Well, given that Pelicans start to breed at age 3-5 years old, and he has started to get his adult plumage, I would say he is right at 3 years old.

    Most likely, after this summer, he will find a lady (or if "he" is really a "she", a man), start a family over on Gaillard Island or some other pelican breeding colony island and we won't see him hanging around much in the summer.
