Description and Features
Pelicans are very large aquatic birds with a wingspan which can reach over 3 meters. Pelicans live around the shores of oceans, rivers, and lakes since their diet consists almost exclusively of fish. The pelicans’ most distinctive feature is their long beak with a throat pouch on the bottom. This allows the pelican to use its beak like a scoop when hunting for fish and carry even large fish. Pelicans’ feathers are usually white with black sections on their wings. Sometimes they even appear slightly pink or grey.
