Pink-backed Pelican

The pink-backed pelican can be found in the shallow lakes of Africa, southern Arabia, and southern India.

It is a relatively small pelican, although by no means is it a small bird. Its length is from 125 to 155 cm, wingspan is 2.15–2.9 m and body mass is from 4 to 7 kg. The bill is 30 to 38 cm in length. The plumage is grey and white, with a pinkish hue on the back occasionally apparent.

Have a great Monday!
