Peruvian Pelis~

Coquimbo Chile is a marine bird paradise!

It is home to the impressive Peruvian Pelican.

Peruvian Pelicans are twice the size of their northern cousins and stand up to five feet tall!

They somehow manage to look individually comical,

but sober as judges in a group.

These beauties were photographed in Coquimbo Chile, and on the Palomino and Ballestas Islands off the coast of Peru.

Cheers to you from the pretty as a picture Peruvian pelis~

  2. Great captures! Cindy. Fantastic big birds, gentle giants. I’ll be visiting Peru next year in February. I’m planning to visit Islas Ballestas and Paracas. 🙂

  3. Absolutely amazing, Cindy! Wonderful shots of these beauties. I never knew they were that big, and the colours are extremely beautiful. My colours as well…cannot but love them. And they have got character – indeed!
