Artist's Description

… Pelecanus conspicillatus … the Australian Pelican is medium sized by pelican standards but it has the largest bill in the avian world. During the courtship period, the bill and pouch change colour dramatically … the forward half of the pouch becomes bright salmon pink. This colour change is of short duration, the intensity usually subsiding by the time incubation starts.
Photographed at Cleland Wildlife Park, South Australia.
