Pelican

A wonderful bird is the pelican.
His beak will hold more than his belly can.
He can take in his beak
Food enough for a week
But I'm damned if I see how the helican.

I love Pelicans! They are so awkward, yet graceful and their large bill must make eating a challenge at time. Great pictures!

Me Ann My Camera - Thanks again. They're such interesting birds with that nice pouch under their bills.
