    Never been sure of the difference(s) between these two very LARGE birds mentioned ... because, based on photos that I've seen, they're rather similar in appearance.

    Hence my reason for any changes made to the original well~known rhyme ... as a consequence of choosing the closest look-alike emoticon for insertion at the start of this thread.

    Pelicans are larger and heavier than storks.
    Storks have a longer neck compared to pelicans.
    Pelicans have a characteristic pouch as a part of their bill, but not in storks.
    Pelicans have the largest bill among all the birds.

    I remember seeing either a pelican or stork feasting on a seagull in a busy UK park. The video is probably still on YouTube.

    Nope - which makes me wonder that pelicans/storks gobble up other birds fairly regularly.
