Excerpt from One Pelican at a Time:
The girls waited and watched while adults tried to fix the problem. That is, until they saw the old pelican leave his perch and plunge into a patch of blackened sea.
Britt gasped. "Will he come back up?"
"If he does, how can he live? Bella asked.
But he did come to the surface, covered in heavy tacky oil. After seeing his oily feathers, the girls took action.
"Help! Help us help the pelican! both girls screamed.
Normally on such a hot summer day, the beach boy would be renting colorful umbrellas to his customers. Instead, he sat alone on the sand. "What's wrong?" He jumped up and ran toward the girls.
"The old pelican! The old pelican! We have to save him! Bella sobbed.
"Come on. No time to lose!" The young man sprinted down the beach toward the clean-up crews.
"Ah, I know that old bird," nodded the crew chief. "Let's go get him."
