“Everything needs to grow wild, but it takes time to see the beauty.” – D. Agustin
Everyday at 12 noon you can get close to the pelicans of Phillip Island (southeast of Victoria) with the daily feeding on the foreshore next to the San Remo Pier. Because these are wild animals, the number of pelicans can vary from 5 up to 35 depending if they had a feed somewhere else,I guess.
The hungry birds are being fed by the San Remo Co-op daily. The purpose is aside from feeding and entertainment, is to educate the public about the Pelicans, their diet, lifestyle and how to improve their environment as well as of other similar species.
The Pelicans waiting patiently for their food while the person in charge explained about them.
The pelicans are wild so them roam around the jetty looking for food. Some may come near you and may look scary because they stare at you directly, but they say that Pelicans are harmless.
It is said that the age of the Pelicans are determined by the colour of its feathers. The darker it is the older the bird is.
