~ Pelicanus Conspicillatus ~
“A wonderful bird is the Pelican.
His beak can hold more than his belly can.
He can hold in his beak
Enough food for a week!
But I'll be darned if I know how the hellican?”
― Dixon Lanier Merritt
I think I would have to disagree with the last line of the rhyme by Dixon Merritt
this pelican snapped along the upper reaches of the Torrens River
certainly looked like his beak would hold more than his belly can.
