His bill will hold more than his belly can.
He can take in his beak
Enough food for a week.........
But I'm damned if I see how the hell he can!
That is a little poem from my childhood days. I lived in Ohio, my grandparents in Florida. My grandmother had a postcard of a pelican that included that poem. Florida seemed like a magical place to me then, and the poem stayed with me through the years.
Join me tomorrow for more of Pelican Week!
