Australian pelican

The Australian pelican travels large distances inland when the centre of the nation is bursting forth with rains that have travelled down from the monsoonal North the great event is a gorging extravaganza and heralds a brief breeding season for the pelican and many species of Australian water birds. But this is a once in a generation event but normally these large Australian birds will breed on islands off shore and can do so any time of the year but this is often determined by rainfall. During the breeding season the pelican will lay in between two to four eggs and may raise a single offspring to maturity.
