Pelican, Silver Gull and Little Pied Cormorant



never have been into portraitures; but when it comes to birds, that's a different story





how comfortable would it be squatting on this cold metal light-post?




a view from the vehicular bridge at The Entrance, N.S.W. where these birds were photographed

this view is at the top end of the previous image location.  Around here, I walked down steps and then to the left. 

now, now, that's not playing fair.  Looks like two caught the leftovers thrown by the fisherman, and the odd one out on the right, thought it'd be easy enough to snatch the catch!

so we go off in a huff now!

and Little Pied Cormorant speeds along doing its own thing

Love the pics. It must be a "pelican thing" of sitting on the light poles on jetties. Talk about taking the food out of your mouth.

The first picture of the pelican with the bad hair day is great!

Great photos - and I wish that I had stopped there, sometime, rather than just speeding over the bridge!

Beautiful set of photos. Love the Pelican close-up!

Fabulous shots!

Jan Castle said...

Your pelicans look a bit different than our pelicans...ours are brown with no pink beak area. Lovely birds...and of course you know 'their beaks can hold more than their belly can'.
Hugs,
Jan

Brian King said...

These are fantastic, Carole! That portrait of the pelican is outstanding! Really nice job!

Those pelicans have character. I like the first one's hairdo and the one stealing the food is a great shot. It is about 60 years ago since I have been to The Entrance

Helma said...

These all look like such "happy" birds! Love that first one with the funky hair-do! :-)
