Pelicans


Sunshine Coast Daily Photo - Australia

A few weeks ago, I indicated that we were off to the centre of Australia among other things, to see if we could see some of the giant bird rookeries that are active at the moment.

Almost 2,000 kilometres from the coast, we found the remainder of one, with many of the birds following the vast flood of water south to Lake Eyre, to join an estimated 50,000 pelicans and every other variety of seabird.

We'll follow them for a few more weeks, just for fun, so please be aware that internet time continues to be very very limited and I am currently unable to respond to your comments, (which are still greatly appreciated).

This photograph was taken in Birdsville, a somewhat ironic location perhaps, and one of the most remote towns in Australia.

Birdsville,
Not the Sunshine Coast.

We saw the massive Pelican rookery at the inland sea on the 730 Report last night. It was inspiring.

Looking foward to your shots when you get in among the huge flocks. This one is a great start.
