Jon Hammond’s BOD – Birds of The Day: Pelicans
Looking for fish in the Pacific Ocean just outside the Golden Gate – JH
Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Aves
Order: Pelecaniformes
Family: Pelecanidae
Rafinesque, 1815

Pelicans are a genus of large water birds comprising the family Pelecanidae. They are characterised by a long beak and large throat pouch used in catching prey and draining water from the scooped up contents before swallowing. They have predominantly pale plumage, the exceptions being the Brown and Peruvian Pelicans. The bills, pouches and bare facial skin of all species become brightly coloured before the breeding season. The eight living pelican species have a patchy global distribution, ranging latitudinally from the tropics to the temperate zone, though they are absent from interior South America as well as from polar regions and the open ocean. Fossil evidence of pelicans dates back at least 30 million years, to the remains of a beak very similar to that of modern species recovered from Oligocene strata in France.
Long thought to be related to frigatebirds, cormorants, tropicbirds, gannets and boobies, pelicans are now known instead to be most closely related to the Shoebill and Hamerkop, and are placed in the order Pelecaniformes. Ibises, spoonbills and herons are more distant relatives, and have been classified in the same order. Pelicans frequent inland and coastal waters where they feed principally on fish, catching them at or near the water surface. Gregarious birds, they often hunt cooperatively and breed colonially. Four white-plumaged species tend to nest on the ground, and four brown or grey-plumaged species nest mainly in trees.
The relationship between pelicans and people has often been contentious. The birds have been persecuted because of their perceived competition with commercial and recreational fishers. They have suffered from habitat destruction, disturbance and environmental pollution, and three species are of conservation concern. They also have a long history of cultural significance in mythology, and in Christian and heraldic iconography.
The genus Pelecanus was first formally described by Linnaeus in 1758, in the tenth edition of his Systema Naturae. He described the distinguishing characteristics as a straight bill hooked at the tip, linear nostrils, a bare face, and fully webbed feet. This early definition included frigatebirds, cormorants, and sulids as well as pelicans.[1] The name comes from the Ancient Greek word pelekan (πελεκάν),[2] which is itself derived from the word pelekys (πελεκυς) meaning “axe”.[3] In classical times, the word was applied to both the pelican and the woodpecker.[4]
Taxonomy[edit source | editbeta]
Main article: Pelecaniformes#Systematics and evolution
Pelicans give their name to the Pelecaniformes, an order which has had a varied taxonomic history. Tropicbirds, darters, cormorants, gannets, boobies and frigatebirds, all traditional members of the order, have since been reclassified: tropicbirds into their own order, Phaethontiformes, and the remainder into Suliformes. In their place, herons, ibises, spoonbills, the Hamerkop and the Shoebill have now been transferred into Pelecaniformes.[5] Molecular evidence suggests that the Shoebill and the Hamerkop form a sister group to the pelicans,[6] though there is some doubt as to the exact relationship between the three lineages
The fossil record shows that the pelican lineage has existed for at least 30 million years; the oldest known pelican fossil was found in Early Oligocene deposits at the Luberon in southeastern France and is remarkably similar to modern forms.[8] Its beak is almost complete and is morphologically identical to that of present day pelicans, showing that this advanced feeding apparatus was already in existence at the time.[8] An Early Miocene fossil has been named Miopelecanus gracilis on the basis of certain features originally considered unique but later thought to lie within the range of inter-specific variation in Pelecanus.[8] The Late Eocene Protopelicanus may be a pelecaniform or suliform – or a similar aquatic bird such as a pseudotooth (Pelagornithidae).[9] The supposed Miocene pelican Liptornis from Patagonia is a nomen dubium (of doubtful validity), being based on fragments providing insufficient evidence to support a valid description.[10]
Fossil finds from North America have been meagre, compared with Europe, which has a richer fossil record.[11] Several Pelecanus species have been described from fossil material, including:[12]
Pelecanus cadimurka, Rich & van Tets, 1981 (Late Pliocene, South Australia)

Jon Hammond in New York City just back from Germany music tour and 20th year at Musikmesse Frankfurt trade show…digging deep in to the archives to present a special show put together by Jon in 1993 in Frankfurt Hausen-BROTFABRIK (the old Bread Factory) Jon Hammond presenting French Pianist FRANCOISE PUJOL first time in Germany along with RICHARD BONA on bass from Cameroon & Paris, now living in NY and FRANCIS LASSUS – drums/batterie. A crazy story about how Jon convinced Bösendorfer Piano Company to bring their most expensive Imperial concert grand piano for Francoise to play there. The musicians got in to an argument at sound check and Jon Hammond almost had to play the famous piano himself, but thankfully it worked out and the tension made for some great playing! Never before heard (I wonder why?!) Also a new track from Hungarian saxophonist TONY LAKATOS’ brand-new album “Gypsy Colours” on the SKIP RECORDS label. Tony’s original composition “Mr. Fried” played and recorded with his brothers in Budapest Hungary. Thank you Tony and Lakatos Family! Jon’s trio live at Bruno’s in San Francisco featuring drummer RONNIE SMITH Jr. from Oakland CA and dedicated to United Airlines: “No Excess Baggage Blues” from Jon Hammond’s new album “NDR SESSIONS Projekt” for KYOU and KYCY 1550 AM, home of the Oakland A’s!

Große Freiheit Nr. 7 Wikiße_Freiheit_Nr._7
Große Freiheit Nr. 7 (Great Freedom No. 7) is a 1944 German musical drama film directed by Helmut Käutner. It was named after Große Freiheit (grand freedom), a street next to Hamburg’s Reeperbahn road in the St. Pauli red light district.
The film is also known as Port of Freedom in the United Kingdom.
The film tells the story of the blond “singing sailor” Hannes Kröger (played by Hans Albers) who works in a Reeperbahn club and falls in love with a girl played by Ilse Werner.

Due to the threat of Allied bombing raids to Hamburg Harbour and to the Ufa studios in Berlin’s Neubabelsberg and Tempelhof when it was made in 1943 (May to November), most of the movie was shot in Prague’s Barrandov Studios by Helmut Käutner, as the first Agfa colorfilm by Terra. For a scene with a boat trip in Hamburg harbour warships had to be covered up.

Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels was dissatisfied, and demanded many changes to make the film more “German”, for instance by renaming the lead role from Jonny (as in Albers’ earlier hit song “Good bye, Jonny”) to Hannes. After a year of editing, the movie was banned anyway in Nazi Germany on 12 December 1944,[1][2] and was only shown outside of the Großdeutsches Reich proper, with the premiere on 15 December 1944 in Prague (then a Reichsprotektorat). It remained banned in Nazi Germany, opening on 6 September 1945 in Berlin’s Filmbühne Wien after the Allied victory. — at Große Freiheit Nr. 7
