A wonderful bird is the pelican...

... his beak can hold more than his belican
He holds in his beak
Enough for a week
And people all wonder how the helican.

...or so my Victorian granmother told me, way back when I was young enough not to know whether to laugh or be shocked. We have a happy flock of pelicans on the Berg river near here and I particularly enjoy seeing them flying, like a bunch of cardboard cutouts on a washing line - but the pelicans in the picture are actually in Singapore's zoo.

Great photo. Pelicans are rather majestic aren't they?
What a wonderful bird is the pelican
His bill can hold more than his belly can.
