Pelicans protecting their lofty perch

Sydney's Robert Barrett sent us some photos of a surprise attack by a crow on two pelicans near Kiama Harbour recently.

"While we were enjoying a recent stay at Kiama Harbour Cabins, we were duly entertained by the local pelicans," Mr Barrett said.  

"One pair put on quite a performance having somehow offended a local crow who clearly wanted them gone.

"The plan of attack appears to have been an approach from the rear, followed by a few well directed pecks to the tail feathers, but they saw it coming."

It appears that the pelicans won the day.
