Florida Pelicans

Florida Pelicans, often called the "Flying Suitcases," these birds hold many times their own weight in their over-size mouth pouches.  You can see them all over the Florida coast.

Pelicans in Tropical Florida
We are a pelican family,
Queerer birds you'll never see.
With beaks so elastic,
We look quite fantastic.  But at fishing, we're tops, you'll agree.

A peculiar bird is the Pelican - his beak can hold more than his belican!
