Pelecanidae the Pelican (From Melbourne Zoo)

The Pelican is a common sight around water, and as such I think often they are treated a bit unfairly compared to Elephants and other creatures. They do seem to survive well so that is an added bonus, plus they look unusual with the large bill and the yellow coloring around the eye. This guy is from the family Pelecanidae, the Genus Pelecanus and is species P. conspicillatus

This guy was seen at the water exhibit of the Melbourne Zoo, again with the Nikon D5300 and the Tamron 150-600mm lense, mind you it did not mind me approaching in the slightest!
