These pelicans were patiently waiting outside the Sydney Fish Market to see if they could glean some tasty treats
Australian pelicans are one of the largest flying birds. They feature a wingspan of 2.3 to 2.5 m and can weigh from 4 to 6.8 kg. They have the longest bill length of any extant bird ranging from 36 to cm. The average bill length of males is between 42 and 46 cm and in females from 36 to 41 cm.
Their distinctive large pink bill and black wings make them a striking looking bird
The gular pouch, under the bill, will stretch when it is filled with water and can hold up to three gallons.
All around our neighbourhood the Magnolias are flowering bright and proud in beautiful hues of pink and white.
Because of the Magnolias’ sweet, creamy and light floral scent, the magnolia has been used in perfumery for centuries. It was named after French botanist Pierre Magnol.
Considered a classic floral fragrance, the scent of magnolia has notes of a sweet floral punch like a rose, but with a citrusy lemon edge and a slightly earthy, musk undertone.
