Pink-backed Pelican

While relaxing at Songwa dam on Sunday (with the men preparing the lunch) I took several photos of a small flock of pelicans on a rock quite far in the water. I struggled to get clear photos but have posted them here nonetheless.

BTW don't you just LOVE the way so many birds are sitting peacefully on the smallest clump of rocks? There is no pushing or shoving for the best place. Everyone just got on with the task in hand, which in the birds' case, was preening. We humans could take note!

I trust you're all having a great week!


  1. Wonderful captures of such beautiful birds, Jo!! I love them!! Hope your week is going well!

  2. Too right Jo. Love your Pelicans, nice to see some different from ours.

  3. I love the Pelican, they are cool looking birds. Great sighting, Jo!

  4. Cool shots of the pelicans, Jo! I often have to zoom in on a subject, so I know how hard it is to get a really focused shot. These turned out well.
