“Storm Boy” reference there with the title – a film made not too far away in the Coorong in 1976. A boy had 3 pelicans – Mr Proud, Mr Ponder, and the extra special, Mr Percival.
One of our characteristic pelicans at Kingscote. They are fed by a local every day at 5pm, which makes for a wonderful photo op. He buys fish from the local fisherman, all out of his own pocket, to feed them every day of the year.
This lovely fellow is displaying his courting colour on his bill – normally a pale pink shade, they are lovely a vibrant at the moment.
