Of Beaks and Bellies

"A wonderful bird is the Pelican.
His beak can hold more than his belly can.
He can hold in his beak
Enough food for a week!
But I'll be darned if I know how the hellican?
"

Dixon Lanier Merritt, 1910

Funny! They (WHITE pelicans) should be returning to southern California soon for the winter! Our "normal" ones are brown but they are a favorite of mine to watch fly!

I'm trying to figure out what is happening in 3? So bizarre. Fascinating flexible pelican.
