This female pelican was brought up by the boat owner we toured with on the Kalgan River, Albany, Western Australia. He found the young pelican trapped in fishing line, rescued it and let it go, but it continues to seek him out and follows him on his river boat trips. It will allow him to hand feed it fish and has learned to follow some commands. She has been named ‘Percy’.
Dedicated to Percy and all other rescued Pelicans.
