How exactly does one know the age of a Pelican?

Count the rings…  no that’s on a tree.  Look at the Teeth?  That’s right, birds don’t have teeth…  And now that it has cleaned you out of bait (sucker!!) I guess you will have no choice but to head in…  So it’s Pelican one, Human beings zero, after one inning of play…  we’ll be back right after this…
