Birding Diaries – Meet the Australian Pelican from Kangaroo Island
I was at Kangaroo Island in South Australia, looking for endemic birds and our guide finally took us to a lagoon where I saw the Australian pelican, besides some godwits and cormorants.
I was told that the Australian pelican has the largest beaks amongst all birds. There was no one at the lagoon and I found these birds posing for my camera.
Birding is such an addictive hobby and very often you do not feel like leaving a place. And I was literally dragged away from the pelicans. Kangaroo Island has several birds and for a birder like me, its a paradise. The pelicans are also one of the largest birds here.In India, I have seen the spot billed pelican and the great white pelican.
To see more gorgeous skies this Friday do visit Skywatch.
