These pelicans are
very similar to the great white
pelicans. They differ in the following ways:
- They come from
Africa and W. Arabia, but are not found in Europe or Asia.
- They do not migrate
for long distances, although they may fly to new feeding grounds locally.
- Feeding in teams
is unusual - they usually fish singly, swimming along slowly or staying
still in the water.
- They are smaller
than great white pelicans.
- Their colour is
darker and more mottled.
