Fun watching pelicans

Watching Australian Pelicans is always rewarding. When the birds are relaxed and roosting they will regularly perform a series of stretching exercises with their bill that are designed to maintain the gular pouch in supple and flexible condition. This behaviour is shared by all of the different species of pelicans, of which there are eight worldwide.

  1. Interested in your Pelicans and mentioning the 8 species as they had them all at the Jurong Bird Park in Singapore which I am just back from.
