"A wonderful bird is the pelican. 

His beak can hold more than his belican.

He can hold in his beak 

Enough food for a week,

But I'm damned if I see how the helican."

Ogden Nash

Pelicans, and other shore birds offer endless fascination. They soar above the waves, then dive at incredible speeds to catch their dinner. Beautifully elegant in the air, when they land, they become something entirely different, awkward, fumbling, and comic.
