Pelicans Can

Littletree has been learning about Pelicans – we went for an excursion with home school group to an estuary where pelicans flock in abundance and we could observe them eating.

Littletree was fascinated, and the birds are relatively comfortable around humans


It was incredible to be able to get so close to a wild flock, and I gave Littletree the camera and left her to observe them and take notes.

She took a whole bunch of amazing photos (dozens, in fact).




And the thing she found most amazing was watching that the pelicans actually turn their bill “inside out”.


So now we’ve been to the library and all over the internet reading about pelicans and learning about them – Littletree was even so taken with it that she got out her “Listening to Nature” notebook and wrote a report on Pelicans.

Life learning in action!
