Pelican Feeding on Kangaroo Island with Zeb and Eider Duck

On the way to Kingscote for the Pelican Feeding, we passed grapevines.

There are many wineries on Kangaroo Island.   Our guide also pointed out some termite hills.  The Kangaroo Island Heath Goanna Lizard is very smart.   The lizard lays the eggs in the termite hill.   The temperature inside the hill is perfect for incubating eggs.   Eight months later, in the spring, the eggs hatch and the mother lizard is there to help the new born lizards as they emerge from the termite hill.

Zeb and Eider went to a pelican feeding.

It was our first pelican feeding.  Arriving at the pier in Kingscote, we sat in the viewing area.   There were so many pelicans waiting for food.

Soon the man arrived with a huge container of fish.

The pelicans gathered around him as he talked to us.   These pelicans are different than the U.S. pelicans.

We have brown pelicans and the man said ours are a little smaller.   Soon the feeding began.

We loved to see all the pelicans.   They are so pretty

We really liked the pelican feeding and we really liked the pelicans.
