Pulling up its awkward body weight does not appear effortless, but pelicans' flight is part of their nature...and thus, the 'hard work' is well engineered. Plus, it is the only way to float over the surface and find breakfast! 2nd Ave N & Gulf of Mexico, Naples, FL

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.
