Fossil evidence of pelicans dates back at least 30 million years.
The pelican has been featured in mythology as far back as the 12th century. A mother feeding her brood with her own blood. A male pelican that kills their brood, only to revive them with blood from a self inflicted wound.
I love it, Zombie Pelicans!
