Wild Bird Wednesday 502 - Australian Pelican

The Australian Pelican (Pelecanus conspicillatus) is a bird that is hard to miss when it's about.  Loafing on the shore, flying in the sky or perching on polls, they dominate any place they choose to be.

Here are some of my favourite picture of Pelicans. 






Hope everyone is well and that the birds are treating your well.

  4. What a wonderful bird is the pelican .... d

    Sounds like it acts exactly like its American cousins -- a little goofy looking, a little bit loud, and very much present! Thanks for hosting.

  9. That last photo is so artful! Pelican flocks fly with such precision, despite thie ungainly look when on the ground.

  14. I'm always amazed such a large, ungainly-looking bird on the ground can actually fly!

    Your series of photographs is really superb, Stewart!

    We're blessed here in west Florida with both American White and Brown Pelicans. It's fascinating to watch the different feeding techniques of the two species. White's tend to "herd" schools of fish into an ever-tightening circle where they are then easy to pick off. Brown's tend to fly around until a school is spotted then crash into the water and scoop up as much as they can.

    All is really good around here and we hope the same is true for you!

  15. Doskonały reportaż ze spotkania z pelikanami. Ja widziałam tylko w zoo. Ponoć kilka razy ktoś zaobserwował w Polsce pelikana różowego.
