  Pelican feeding at The Entrance
by balhannah

The Entrance is another of my favorite Towns not that far from Sydney.

Quite a sight to see, is the daily Pelican Feeding.
It has been happening for over 20years, starting when the staff from the nearby fish & chip shop would throw out the scraps, the Pelican's loved the "free feed!" When they were late in throwing their scraps out, the pelicans would cross the road and come up to the shop to be fed.
By feeding the Pelican's, it also is a chance to keep check on them, as they do get fishing line & hooks caught in their gullets, wings, and other parts of their bodies, it can be a slow, cruel death if left unattended.

The Entrance has now been internationally recognised as 'The Pelican Capital of Australia'

Wander down to the pelican pavilion on the foreshore, it's quite good fun to watch, we enjoyed it, I'm sure you will, there is quite a bit gathering of Pelicans and Humans!

TIME.....3.30pm daily, 365 days a year come rain, hail or shine.
