In researching how changes in climate and shortages of food can impact pelican populations, we stumbled upon a story from earlier this year. How an unusual cold snap caused hundreds of endangered Dalmatian pelicans - the world's largest pelican, to flock to an open waterway in Russia's Dagestan province.


 

Our search for more on the Dalmatian pelican, led us to some amazing images of the rare bird, HERE. Enjoy.
