Pelicans

 

Pelican WaddleThere is an old rhyme about the pelican – ’tis a wonderful bird is the pelican, its beak can hold more than its belly can’. This is apparently true!

Some photos today of local Australian pelicans from the Ballina (NSW) region in memory of Lance Ferris a local man who made it his mission and founded the Australian Seabird Rescue to not only rescue pelicans, seabirds and other sea creatures but also educate from the young to the old the inherent dangers of fishing tackle left in waterways and the ocean. You may remember him from the ABC program Australian Story.
