A wondrous bird



Oh, a wondrous bird is the pelican!
His bill holds more than his bellican.
He can take in his beak
Enough food for a week.
But I'm darned if I know how the hellican.

You can find this couple in London's St James Park

While I found multiple attributions for this limerick, I believe I first read this in one of my favourite books, The Complete Nonsense of Edward Lear, a book I got for Christmas more than 40 years ago!

Pelicans! Never seen any in person, must be really beautiful! Especially with the sun shining over their feathers :)
