Captured off Catalina Island, California, USA
(A ditty for your amusement)
A wonderful bird is the pelican,
His bill can hold more than his bellican.
He can take in his beak,
Food enough for a week,
But I’m damned if I see how the hellican!
This bird has an enormous bill and an expandable throat pouch. The brown pelican captures its prey by a spectacular dive into the water from considerable height.
