pelicans

I absolutely love the pelicans, they are an iconic symbol of my childhood that was spent around lakes, inlets and beaches. They have an enormous bill and pouch and feed by dipping their head under water to trap the fish in the pouch. Pelicans hang out together and breed in colonies on the ground on islets in inland lakes and on offshore islands. I fondly remember my father teaching me the pelican ditty when I was small.. ‘no-one can like a Pel-i-can, his bill holds more than his bel-ly-can!’.
