Pelican Paradise

Location: The Entrance, Central Coast, N.S.W.

Back in February I'd posted some pelican photos taken along the bridge on this post, and said there were more to come.  Glad you waited around ... :)


View from the bridge; the walk took me from one end to the other.  I ended up where you can see those white sails, on the foreshore to the right of the palm tree

I'd parked at the Pelicans Wharf, Terilbah Reserve, where the 'x' shows at the top right hand of this photo, and took my pics on the opposite side.

There was a good guitarist/singer entertaining to an audience sitting back in chairs on the grassed area under cover; while the little red fun train went back and forth behind where I sat on the edge of the pathway/by the water.

It was kind of surreal, sitting there with a smorgasbord of water-birds to photograph though not to the sounds of water lapping around my feet, but to the up beat of Copperhead Road instead. 

plenty of seagulls

Wonderful post Carole. Pelicans are one of my faves. They are not only beautiful birds but they seem so graceful to me. I love to watch them feed too.

Great pictures of the pelicans Carole. I love the one where 3 are facing one way with their bills down and the 4th is looking the other way.

Soft downy heads and pink beaks - they are beautiful!
Lovely series Carole!

I admire the distance you walked.
I'd have never made it - old knees. :)

Love this post. So many birds in one place. I love Pelicans and you've captured some great shots here, Carole!
I took a trip out west yesterday and managed to capture a lone Pelican on Lake Wivenhoe. I'm using the shots for a water post :)
