While out at Cleveland Point a few weeks ago (when the weather was nicer), I captured these Australian Pelicans.
Has anyone seen my keys???
I found one of their behaviours rather interesting as I hadn't seen it before... so much so that I Googled it when I got home...
I have named this beak stretching behaviour "Pelican Party Trick". The National Geographic calls it Pelican yoga. It looks more like a teenage party trick to me....
I still can't find my keys...
And just incase I missed it the first time... he did his Party trick again...
There's that lady with the camera again...
As you were...

Wonderful photos of the cool birds.
Have a great day, Liz.
These are so great Liz! Such animated pictures. I might just have to Google them myself and find out a bit more.
you had me laughing out loud with the keys... :)
Preciosas fotos de los pelicanos,, parece que tienen el pico pintado. Son geniales..
Great series of shots of the pelican antics!
pelicans are my most favorite birds of all. these are really great shots of them. they are like ours here in Florida but not. ours are called brown pelicans, yours are a little more colorful. so beautiful and thanks for sharing
Australian Pelicans never heard about them.
The beautiful birds.
A-M-A-Z-I-N-G photos! Pelicans are so cool.
Great photos of the pelicans. They are always fun to watch and photograph. I hope you can see some more waders around Toorbul and Bribie Island. Check out the Kakadu Beach roost site on Bribie - the QWSG web site at waders.org.au has a full page about it.
Very nice photos of the Pelicans. Lovely to see.
Amazing photos Liz!
I once got attacked by a Pelican (it was in a zoo, not a wild one!). Can`t look at one again without a `twinge` of pain!;)

Great post full of fantastic photos!
They are such characters!! Love it Liz, made me laugh.
I can never see a pelican without thinking of Merritt's limerick:
A wonderful bird is the pelican,
His bill will hold more than his belican,
He can take in his beak
Enough food for a week
But I'm damned if I see how the helican!
Wow! Great photos! I love pelicans! They have so much personality...
Some great photos, wonderful post, I love pelicans
