Photographer's Note

Pelicans rest in Pumicestone Passage on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. In the background is the northern tip of Bribie Island and the Norfolk Pines beyond are at Caloundra on the Australian mainland.

Australian Pelicans are a large waterbird measuring 1.6 to 1.8 metres long and have a wingspan of 2.3 to 2.5 metres. They are predominantly white with black along the primaries of the wings. Their pale pinkish bills are enormous and are infact the largest bills in the avian world - the record being 49 cm in length.
