Pelicans


Pelican at American River, Kangaroo Island, South Australia

A remarkable bird is the pelican
Its beak can hold more than its belly-can
It can hold in its beak, enough food for a week
I wonder how the hell-'e-can?


There is masses of birdlife on Kangaroo Island. I love the pelicans (despite being bitten by one at the age of four). These photos were taken at American River (which isn't really a river - it's more a swampy almost-closed-in bay) on the east of the island.
