Pelicano Branco

In the symbology, the pelican is symbol of the self-sacrificing and the universal charity… It counts a medieval legend, that the pelican feeds its younglings with the proper blood… The alchemists of this period considered it as image of the philosophical rock… Although she is found in bigger number in the Nakuru Lake (44,000 birds in January of 1992), they only make their nest in the Elementaita Lake, also in the Kenya.

Nome comum: Pelicano-branco-grande
Nome em inglês: Great White Pelican
Nome científico: Pelecanus onocrotalus

Na simbologia, o pelicano é símbolo do sacrifício abnegado e da caridade universal... Conta uma lenda medieval, que o pelicano alimenta seus filhotes com o próprio sangue... Os alquimistas deste período consideravam-no como imagem da pedra filosofal...

Embora seja encontrado em maior número no Lago Nakuru (44.000 aves em janeiro de 1992), eles somente nidificam no Lago Elementaita, também no Quênia.
