pelicans can weigh up to 13 kilogram, making them one of the world's heavier
flying birds. However, with huge wings flight is anything but laboured and
often they will make use of thermals to gain height before setting out on
a long journey.
They can be seen in large groups at locations across Australia, often hundreds
at a time, where coming together is used to aid feeding.
Australia is fortunate to have wonderful, unique and iconic wildlife. This site is dedicated to promoting its enjoyment and preservation.
