Carnivorous pelicans…

As I have said in an earlier post, I can’t help being fascinated by freaky and horrible stories. Warning, this story may contain images which are disturbing to pigeon fanciers.

A pelican in St James’ Park, London, carried a pigeon around in its beak for 20 minutes before swallowing it alive.

Puts a whole new spin on that limerick…

A wonderful bird is the pelican,
His mouth can hold more than his bellican,
He can hold in his beak,
Enough food for a week!
I’m damned if I know how the helican!
