I usually see Pelicans wherever I kayak around the bay. (For the benefit of readers outside Australia this bird is the Australian Pelican - Pelicanus conspicillatus.) I find them fascinating - as I guess you can tell from the photo on the top of this blog. I also keep taking more photos of them. Here are a few:
Floating and swimming over the water they look so graceful.
Standing around on the sand banks they get into some most unusual poses. Their beaks look enormous however they are holding them.
They give a harsh grunt when they don't want to be disturbed – and the eyes look positively evil.
Even a pelican's neck needs scratching sometimes.
A juvenile bird grooming its feathers.
Have a look at the Bird Photography Weekly site.
