Pelican Eats Pigeon

I was blown away by this video clip that I saw last night on the news in Phoenix AZ. In St James' Park, London a pelican (apparently tired of its usual diet of fish) decided to eat a pigeon. Some tourists caught it on camera.

I sent an email to my friends who live in and around London which simply read "Are your pelicans eating pigeons in the park?" From their responses it was obvious that none of them had seen this on the news or had read about it. Perhaps pelicans eating pigeons is now such a common occurrence in England that it is no longer news worthy?

[Addendum: YouTube removed the original video so I'm putting up a couple more that I found.]
