Unusual Wildlife In Tucson, AZ: "A Wonderful Bird Is the Pelican"

A pelican lights on a lake in Tucson, Arizona (of all places!)

A pelican in Tucson, Arizona?

I was shooting a video with REALTOR Kevin Wood, Realty Execs just down the street.  Sitting at the kitchen table with the Flip Video camera, I was asking Kevin about the home he had just listed.

"Just down the street, there's a lake" he said.  I had to see for myself.  What I saw took my mind back to my high school english days, with the poet Ogden Nash.

A wonderful bird is the Pelican.

His beak can hold more than his belican.

He can hold in his beak

Enough food for a week,

But I'm darned if I know how the helican.

A lake in the middle of Tucson, Arizona.  Go figure~
