Dalmatian pelican

Dalmatian pelican (Pelecanus crispus).

The birds with the largest beak are the pelicans.

They are also one of the largest flying birds on Earth.

The bones of the huge beak, as well as the entire skeleton, have numerous cavities filled with air.

This makes them lightweight without reducing their strength.

Under their lower jaws, the pelicans have a huge leather bag that holds fish caught.

  1. Yes pelican are certainly beautiful birds. I know them only from documentaries. I do not think we have them here in Canada unless there are some on the eastern or western coast. It is too bad that their bills often get caught on trash along the water and can easily get torn with rusted materials. We should be more careful around them and other animals…
