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.
