Beaks open wide in the rain.  But, watch out for fishing nets, hooks and lines that entangle the beak and keep the birds from breeding and feeding.

Pictured: Pelicans put on incredible display as they catch rain in their bills

Another beaded bird I saw (standing next to the pink flamingoes) at the Cheltenham Christmas market.  Complete with fish in the massive beak!  The beak catches and carries fish.

"The American white pelican nests in colonies. Male and female American white pelicans show off their bright orange bills during courtship. They strut around, bow, and take short flights in an attempt to attract a mate." http://www.nhptv.org/natureworks/whitepelican.htm
