Was delighted to find pelicans fly freely here in OZ!!
This guy was walking along the shore and seemed pretty tame to me. What a treat for this Canuck! My very FIRST!!

Was taken at Mannum, South Australia at dusk.

    I love this pelican ,,… beautifully captured,
    We have a lovely Oz story called “Storm Boy” written by a South Australian called Colin Thiele … and later made into a film … which included a pelican called Mr Percival.. The Thieles were my neighbours for many years … Colin has passed away, but was a much loved author, particularly of children;s books.

  • What a cool story, Judy…thanks I’ll have to check it out!!
    Was told about Percival after I’d named him Pete…. LOL!
