Eye See You

Featured in All that is Nature and Pelicans

This Pelican at Monkey Mia, Western Australia, was looking at me, as if it wanted to have its picture taken.

Have included some information regarding the Australian Pelican:

The Australian Pelican

Australia’s largest flying bird, the pelican has a wingspan of 3.5m and the world’s longest bill at 47cm, with an expandable pouch to hold fish.

They forage day and night, alone or in groups, driving fish into the shallows and catching them with their bills. They roost on mudbanks and islands, fluttering their pouch skin to keep cool. They sometimes migrate long distances, flying in loose V formation or in line, soaring up to 3,000m high. They nest in colonies on islands and the chicks gather in groups.

Their diet consists of fish and crustaceans. They inhabit fresh and saline lakes, rivers and swamps.
