Pelicans are fascinating, yet comical-looking, birds. They are one of the largest flying birds and have unique features that allow them to hunt for fish.
Most people know that pelicans scoop up fish in the large pouch beneath their bill, but did you know that pelicans also have a expandable jaw? When the birds dive into the water, the jaw expands like a parachute, scooping up an amazing 3 gallons of water that must be squeezed out before they can swallow their catch.
But for all their hard work, the pelican may still not get to eat, as seagulls have been known to steal fish right out of the pelican's pouch, sometimes while standing on its head.
We are lucky today to have these whimsical birds still with us. In the 60s and 70s, they nearly became extinct in North America due to the effects of DDT. Thankfully, due to strict regulations on pesticides, they have become plentiful again.
This cute necklace features a cute pelican with all its unique features - the large head and long beak with a pouch, and a large oblong body. An antiqued finish brings out the details of its head and feathers.
