At feeding time for the Pelicans and Eels at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, the Pelicans circle in the sky, swoop down and ski across the water to a stop.
Paddling into the shore.
The clan is gathering.
Some cormorants with purple eyes were hoping to get some food too.
Soon the keepers arrived and threw fish for the birds and all the time giving an informative commentary.
Then it was the Eels' turn to be fed chicken pieces. The keeper tapped the water with his foot and they all came swimming up onto the sand. They can't see very well and they wave their head around trying to find the food. I think they use sense of smell to find their prey.
The slippery, slimy dudes were hard to capture as they were in a squirming, seething feeding frenzy. So the shot is blurry.Joining in with Saturday Critters see more interesting critters here.
