Australian Pelican

Pelecanus conspicillatus

Notes:

Pic n video taken at National Zoo, Malaysia. At first I thought its funny... "what's up with this fella". Then the Zoo Ranger told us, this pelican is old, and blind both eyes. So it can't see anything, need to be feed for eating and drinking. Bird watchers/ lovers, hope we can learn something, and help this kind of birds. Poor guy...

While we usually ask that people are cropped out of photos, this is an interesting spotting. Great that they are accommodating this poor bird's needs.
