Someone left this raft in the Cove a few months ago and the local pelicans soon collected. Watch for any length of time and you'll see there's a pecking order of sorts.
The center of the raft is prime territory, reserved for the alpha birds. Wannabes hunker down around the edges, happy just to be dry. Younger birds float nearby, hopeful, watching their elders, waiting their turn.
