Pelican Dreams Showing in Newburyport

Pelican Dreams Showing in Newburyport

Brown Pelican by Phil Brown


A limerick was written by Dixon Lanier Merritt in 1910 about a pelican: “A wonderful bird is the pelican. His bill will hold more than his belican. He can take in his beak, Food enough for a week, I’m damned if I know how the hell he can!”

PELICAN DREAMS is now playing at Newburyport’s Screening Room on State Street.
Running time: 78 m.
Rated: G
Written and directed by Judy Irving who also made WILD PARROTS OF TELEGRAPH HILL it tells of the somewhat famed incident where an injured Brown Pelican landed on the Golden Gate Bridge. The bird was taken to rehab and followed from there to its nesting grounds. It is a story of friendship with the wild.
