American White Pelican


Dr.Garrett and Mr

This wonderful American White Pelican came to us in January 2012.  Keeping him in fish and his release is another story in itself. Keep posted. Above: Cheryl Garrett, DVM, Idaho Humane Society getting ready to examine Mr. 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.
