Artist's Description

… Pelicans (Pelicanus conspicillatus) are not capable of sustained flapping flight but can remain in the air for 24 hours, covering hundreds of kilometres … that’s because they are excellent soarers and can use thermals to rise to considerable altitudes … flight at 1,000m is common, and heights of 3,000m have been recorded.

photographed at the wetlands, Cleland Wildlife Park, Adelaide Hills, South Australia
