An Australian Pelican appears to be yelling at the silver gulls to stay away from the fish head that has just been thrown to them, by the people cleaning fish nearby. This photo was taken at Coffin Bay, South Australia, by the boat ramp fish cleaning table.

    Fabulous, I’d be getting out of the way of that bill…. great shot!

  • Thank you for your comment. It’s beak looks big enough to swallow one of those seagulls.

    This is awesome!

  • They can be a bit ferocious if they are after food. Thanks Keala for the welcome to your group and your comments.
