Great white pelican in the Netherlands


This video shows a great white pelican, Pelicanus onocrotalus, near Callantsoog in the Netherlands.

This bird has already been there for weeks.

Did it escape from somewhere? Or is it a wild vagrant from southern Europe? Nobody knows.

Sjaak van Beek made the video on 14 February 2014. The pelican is still there.
