Pelican Statue

A house in Metairie has a large white pelican statue against the front of the house. It appears to be made of fiberglass, but since it is in someone's yard I didn't get close enough to touch it. It is kind of scary looking and appears to be getting ready to land.

The pelican -- possibly made of stucco -- appeared in the yard in 2019. It looks better now than it did; someone has repaired it.
