Pelicans


There are quite a few pelicans around the area. They are a familiar sight flying - gliding across the sky. Often the are sitting with other sea birds on the waterfront - especially at low tide when quite a few of the birds congregate.

The best place to see them is at the mouth of Wynnum Creek. They spend a lot of time there, as there are many tasty morsels for them from the little Fish cafe, and this is where a lot of fishermen clean their catch and throw fish heads and bones into the creek. Good pickings for hungry pelicans.

The often can be found sitting atop a pole - just lazily watching the world go by and waiting for the next fishing boat to come back to share the catch.
