Description from Beady Little Eyes: A Wonderful Bird Is The Pelican
By Dixon Lanier Merritt

A wonderful bird is the pelican,
His bill will hold more than his belican,
He can take in his beak
Enough food for a week
But I'm damned if I see how the helican!

Another version:

A funny old bird is a pelican.
His beak can hold more than his belican.
Food for a week
He can hold in his beak,
But I don't know how the helican.

    Very pretty pick! I see many beads that are in my collection. I remember being on Pensacola beach one evening talking on my cell with a friend in Iowa and snapping pics of a pelican sitting on a post in the bay
    Where people docked their boats to go eat in the restaurants. It lasted an hour and a half or about 100 to 150 pictures.

    HA,Beady, your poem is great. I have a special place in my heart for White Pelicans. They migrate of Minnesota in spring and fall and also some live and fish in the many lakes in summer. One lovely blue-sky day in spring, a flock of White Pelicans flew over our back yard. I watched as they slowly formed a choreographed ballet overhead. So graceful and precise…simply lovely.
