There is a boat ramp just out of town, and at the top of the ramp is a light pole, and at the top of the light pole was a pelican.
I'd seen this bird - or at least one that look like this one! - there before, but this is the first time I managed to get any decent pictures.
You can find more world birds here, and you can see the latest post on my other blog by clicking the Paying Ready Attention link on the RHS of the page.
Enjoy the birds.
oh, he's beautiful! love those silly-looking pelicans!ReplyDelete
Great shot!! He's such a funny (but cute) looking bird. Love the shots of the marsupials, but couldn't you have "thrown in" a koala just for the heck of it?? They are just too cute!! Mickie :)ReplyDelete
Great photos of the pelican, love that last one! It's such an exotic bird to me, I have seen them twice, one in The US and once in Australia.ReplyDelete
Great shot! they looks a little funny, but very beautiful to. I really would love to see one in real one time :)ReplyDelete
Facinating to see where certain species will perch ... I bet the Gulls weren't too happy..lol.ReplyDelete
What a lovely bird to see.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing.
Great close ups Stewart. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.ReplyDelete
It's funny seeing a Pelican on a light fixture. Great captures!ReplyDelete
What a lovely bird. Great blue sky in the background.ReplyDelete
What a wonderful light ornament a pelican makes. Who knew? That is a hysterical capture Stewart!ReplyDelete
Cool bird,and some beak it has!ReplyDelete
Terrific shots of what looks to me like a prehistoric bird!ReplyDelete
Lovely shots Stewart. A strange place to see one perched :)ReplyDelete
Beautiful images of this pelican. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Nice photos Stewart. We haven't had as many pelican up this way recently - I think they have all been on the wetlands in western Qld.ReplyDelete
Great shots of the Pelican, the last one is my favorite. They are cool birds to see.ReplyDelete
What a great capture! You were there at the right time!ReplyDelete
Isn't it funny how pelicans love perching on these light fittings? I have dozens of pictures of them against the light or cloudy skies. I'll have to post some for skywatch.ReplyDelete
We have a lot of pelicans here (coastal California) - they look so odd and ungainly on the ground, but they fly in beautiful formations, like a wave in the sky.ReplyDelete
