2 weeks have passed since the last photos of the baby pelicans and they have grown to the size of a fully grown hen, They shuffle around near the water watched by a couple of birds. They are unable to stand on their own feet. I think the weight is a factor, Only one baby stood up but not for two long. Still featherless apart from a few pin feathers emerging

    Wow!! they don’t stay little for long. Great family shot.

  • I thought fish was a slimming food, these babies are fast growing, I think the next time I go there they will take to the water, so maybe won’t get a shot. thanks Bev

    Wow this is fantastic, pelicans here have their babies in a nest up high in a tree, so you can’t photograpy them.

  • Thanks Karen, these were on an island in the middle of the lake. (where is here)
