Pink-backed Pelican's crest on head fairly distinct
Today, while birding at Modimola Dam, I witnessed the return of Pink-backed Pelicans. They were last seen in the area in February/ March this year. There were both adult and juveniles in the group of ten.
Pink-backed Pelican giving some guttural notes
During their presence just before winter they were in the company of Great White Pelicans. This time the Great Whites were not present.
