A pelican films one of its first flights with the help of a camera attached to its beak.
The pelican named “Big Bird” lives at a safari lodge in the Mahale Mountains National Park, in Tanzania.
Footage shows the bird setting off over Lake Tanganyika for its evening flight, with a camera attached to its beak to capture the view.
The owners of the lodge where the pelican lives described the bird’s routine on their blog:
“Flight training commences before breakfast most mornings if wind conditions allow. Even Big Bird knows that taking off with a back wind is foolhardy.
“Landings are at best shaky and we often have to look away as she underestimates ground speed and stopping distances.”
