First time Viewing

In 2014 we went to Tasmania, a large island off Australia. A beautiful place. A state of its own.

This is the first time I’ve seen a Pelican. A bird with a beak as large as a shopping bag.

Lovely bird.


What do you think?

  1. Yes indeed, they have a big and large beak but all the more for grabbing as much fish as they can. I do not think we have those quaint looking birds here in Canada although i am not sure especially in the Maritimes provinces. But these birds, because of their wide and long and large beaks often have problems as they get the beaks caught up in metal stuff that can rip the flappy part of the beaks. It is too bad, but I saw a documentary on TV about one guy who rescues the injured pelicans and brings them to a sanctuary to be fixed up. How? I do not remember. Did you take that picture yourself? or is it a snip and paste?

    • Yes HistoryGal I took that picture myself and I have several other photos. We went to Tasmania in 2014, and it was a first for both of us.
      I love Tasmania.
      We have bird rescue in New Zealand too, and they do great work to heal New Zealand birds.
