Pelicans, Long Reef Headland, Sydney, NSW, Australia.

Taken with Canon EOS550D. EFS 55-250mm Lens.


Interesting Fact: Pelican pouches can hold up to three gallons of water (2 – 3 times the amount their stomachs can hold). Seagulls will often sit on a pelican’s head to steal its fish when it opens its bill to pour out the water.
