Flight of the Pelican

A wonderful bird is the pelican,

His bill will hold more than his belican.

He can take in his beak

Food enough for a week,

But I’m damned if I see how the helican.

(by Dixon Lanier Merritt)


A Grey Pelican just taking flight in Kolleru lake near Atapaka, Andhra Pradesh. Thousands of birds visit this sanctuary every year during winter season.
