When a pelican became separated from his flock during a storm he made an unlikely friend. Jeffrey Condon, the manager of the Tanzanian safari camp near where “Bigbird” was stranded, took him out in his kayak every morning to teach the bird to fish. After many failed attempts, and lots of time waiting for fish to swim into his mouth (adorable, right?) Jeffrey and Bigbird succeed. If you’ve ever tried to teach someone, or learn, how to fish, you know how difficult it can be. Now imagine trying to teach a bird. Huge props to Jeffrey!
