Pelican Information

A Pelican is a very large water bird belonging to the family Pelecanidae. There are seven species of pelicans in the world. They can be found on all continents except Antarctica. Pelicans have an elongated bill and a distinctive massive pouch. They use the pouch in order to catch fish, feed the youngs, and even cool themselves. The bill is sensitive and can be up to 40-50cm long. Pelicans use the bill in order to locate fish in murky water.
