Here is a pelican. While the lake has been stocked with fish of late, Mr Percy seemed to be happy to nuzzle around in the grass beds. Normally black swans would come to us if we stopped and hovered, so I can only conclude swans keep away from pelicans. I have only ever seen one or two pelicans at the lake at a time.
I believe this is a pacific black duck, but I stand to be corrected. Sis in Law has a duck and it gets along well with the chickens.
This is a purple swamp hen.
But while we had enjoyed nature, we had to cross a ten lane road on the way home. Somehow I don't think the truck rolled backwards up a slope. Much more likely that the driver of the expensive black car was texting.
