A few years ago I was taking some reference photos of  the pelicans on the pier at the Halifax River in Ormond Beach Florida when I noticed the old fisherman watching me curiously. 

"Are dey a'talkin to ya?" he ask in a slow southern draw with an impish grin on his face. 
"No sir, not talking yet" I answered.
"Well, dey kin talk . . . lotta people don't know that, but dey kin talk." 
"Oh yeah?" I ask. 
He proceeds . . ."Yes sir, but dey can't all talk tho . . . jess some of them, oh about one in a hunderd can actually talk."
"No kiddin? I ask.
"Yeah, but then not to everybody, dey jess talks to some folks" he says.
"Did they ever talk to you?" I asked.
"Yeah,dey's talked to me." he chuckled.
"What did they say to you?"
Leaning slightly more forward and lowering his voice to a gravely mimicking sound, he proceeds, "Well . . .dey said, Ya got'any mullet? His chuckle became a full laughter.
