Australian Pelican

While the Australian Pelican is only medium sized by pelican standards, it has the largest bill of any bird. They are widespread on the inland and coastal waters of Australia and New Guinea, also in Fiji, parts of Indonesia and occasionally in New Zealand.

The Parramatta River is the main tributary of Sydney Harbour and the many walking paths around the edges of the river and harbour bays offer the chance to see these big birds up close right in the middle of suburban Sydney.
