Notes:

The Pelican and the Swan taken from an illustration of the list of birds that Jews were forbidden to eat, some 2500 years ago; full illustration. Actually most modern translations of the text have various owls here, not pelicans and swans, but in the 16th and early 17th centuries in England, the art of ancient hebrew ornithology was not universally taught in schools, and the translators did the best they could.
