At first appearance it looks like a pelican, but there are only 8 known species and none has that peak. I know this is a waterfowl bird, but don't remember its name.
Blas Delgado Ortiz, 5 May 2002

It is an evident *heraldic* pelican, not completely similar to any living species. However, there are no red-white checkered
eagles in Moravia and no two-tailed lions in Bohemia ... :-)

Pelican is right.  Blas is simply impeded by the knowledge of what a pelican actually looks like. Any time you see a bird in this posture (tearing its own breast to feed its young), it's a pelican.  But a heraldic pelican, not a natural one, since natural pelicans don't indulge in this kind of masochistic obsession with doing anything and everything for one's offspring.  A real pelican's beak, of course, could not remotely tear the bird's own flesh, which is why many old-time heraldists (having little information about the actual bird) portrayed it with something more like a vulture's beak.  Vilémov's is closer to reality than many.
