Rosy Pelican

Rosy Pelican (Great white pelican) onn the calm waters of Lake Kerkini, Northern Greece. Alongside the Dalmatian Pelicans we spent some time photographing the small population of Rosy Pelicans. There were far less of these gorgeous pink pelicans, so they did seem to get a bit of a raw deal when squabbles over fish occurred! Despite the lack of sunshine during the week, we were blessed with several very calm days that were perfect for reflections.

This enormous pelican has a striking bluey bill with a central red stripe and red hook at the tip. Beneath the bill is a vibrant yellow pouch capable of holding large volumes of fish. During breeding season they have pinky white crest of long, bushy feathers.
