Pelicans are the largest water bird in Australia. The stretchy pouch inside their bill is used to hold food until the pelican has positioned it right to swallow. When extended, a pelican’s bill can hold up to 13 litres. The Australian Pelican mainly feeds on fish, crustaceans and occasionally small turtles.
Pelicans can be found on all continents except Antarctica.
