Lost Pelican living in Friesland

Posted on Thursday, May 25th, 2006 at 3:13 am CET

A Great White Pelican has been living in the Dutch provice of Friesland, where it was first spotted at the beginning of May. The wild bird probably became lost or disoriented during the spring migration from Africa, possibly due to inexperience. Pelicans winter in East Africa and spend the summers in the Balkans. The birds normally fly via Israel, when they float over thermal streams to conserve energy. While soaring the bird may have been knocked off course and not noticed something was wrong.
