Pelicans and Cormorants

It’s been a while since I took this photograph, but it’s still quite special. It’s a record of the one and only time I’ve ever seen a flock of Little Black Cormorants and a group of their huge cousins, the Australian Pelicans, together on the river.

Enjoy!

Australian Pelican in Flight

It isn’t every day that one sees a Pelican.

Now and then they visit our local swimming baths. Popular spots for them are around the wharves, where they sometimes perch on poles.

Pelicans are very large relatives of cormorants.

Here is a photograph of one in flight, over the river.

Enjoy!
