Pelicans are odd birds…almost prehistoric looking, with those enormous beaks (the largest in the avian world) that have been seen with birds and even small dogs in them !

They can live for 20+ years and can be found around the world. These, not surprisingly, are Australian Pelicans

A wonderful bird is the pelican,
His bill will hold more than his belican. (or belly can)
He can take in his beak
Food enough for a week,
But I’m damned if I see how the helican. (or hell he can)

I went to Ricketts Point today near my home in Melbourne ..a suburban beach which is home to a large number of terns, gulls, cormorants, albatross and a gang of pelicans

I loved how these guys were all cleaning themselves at the same time.

This one appeared too comfy to be bothered getting up..

This youngster thought the whole world is worth a laugh!

In more contemplative mood.
