I hope they don't turn around!

When our 3-year-old grandson Nikolai confronted (conbacked?)
these huge pelicans on Bali in Indonesia, he said later "I am
happy they did not turn aroud. Those beaks could hurt me!"
The Australian Pelican (Pelecanus conspicillatus)
has the longest beak of any bird in the world.
(Photo taken by my daughter Sylvia Iden).

"Oh, a wondrous bird is the pelican!
His bill holds more than his belican.
He can take in his beak
Enough food for a week.
But I'm darned if I know how the helican."
Dixon Lanier Merritt (1879-1972).
