Pelican

A pelican, derived from the Greek word pelekys (meaning “axe” and applied to birds that cut wood with their bills or beaks) is a large water bird with a large throat pouch, belonging to the bird family Pelecanidae.

Modern pelicans, of which there are eight species, are found on all continents except Antarctica. They primarily inhabit warm regions.
