Today, I introduce another of our bird species in Australia. The Australian pelican is a large waterbird of the family Pelecanidae, widespread on the inland and coastal waters of Australia and New Guinea, also in Fiji, parts of Indonesia and as a vagrant in New Zealand.
Clancy's comment: I've seen many of these whopping birds whilst fishing on inland waterways, and also at sea. They are an interesting bird to observe. Looking up at them whilst in flight, they have often resembled small planes. And, watching them eat is gob smacking.
