The first pelican on the island of Mykonos was found by a fisherman in the 1950's. The white pelican was hurt, and the man fed it and kept it until it was healed. The bird, named Petros, decided to not bother migrating again (probably because it was given handouts by the locals). When the first Petros died in December 1985, a replacement was found because it was so popular with locals and tourists. Since then, there have always been at least a few pelicans to keep up the name. Today, there are three, and one has been named Petros as well. We weren't sure which one it was!
