Pelicans are water birds known for their large throat pouch. They often use the throat pouch as a net to catch their fish dinner; they then drain the pouch and swallow their prey. During medieval times, pelican mothers were thought to use their own blood for feeding or resurrecting their young. As a result, the pelican has become a symbol of the Irish Blood Transfusion Service. Today in America, pelicans have come to remind people of vacations.
