The 'pelican with TWO HEADS'

MailOnline reports:

A two-headed pelican? We're told by Snejana Farberov:

Two heads are always better than one, the saying goes, although one feathered fowl may disagree.

A pelican that appears to have two heads was captured in flight over the Danube River by a lucky Ukrainian photographer earlier this month.

The image was taken by Vladimir Kucherenko in the Danube Delta, Europe's largest and best preserved delta which is a host to 300 species of birds...

This is not the first time this phenomenon has been seen among the winged representatives of the animal kingdom.

Here's the pic of 'this phenomenon', as it appears on MailOnline:

The majority of the comments on the story are, unsurprisingly, critical of the Mail ("Can I have a job with DM please? Clearly, it's quite easy and your reporters can write any old unverified rubbish," says logical15).

  1. This rare phenomenon... known as "perspective." Well, no wonder the Mail hasn't heard of it then.

    Also, you can see the second bird's wings. What idiot greenlit this... Oh. Never mind then.
