|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|My wife and I took a trip up to Bribie Island for a picnic over the weekend, and a couple of these fellows dropped in, and got up close and personal.|
There are seven species of pelicans in the world, all of which are similar in shape and, with one exception, are primarily white in colour. Males are larger than females. The most characteristic feature of pelicans is the elongated bill with its massive throat pouch. The bill is 40-50cm long and is larger in males than females.
Pelicans weigh 4.0-6.8kg, are 1.6-1.8m long. Pelicans have large wings and a wingspan of 2.3-2.5 m. They have an extremely light skeleton, weighing less than 10% of their total body weight.
