VIDEO: The incredible story of how a man and a wild pelican formed an unlikely friendship


Joe Harrington

This is genuinely amazing.

A pelican that was separated from his flock during a storm has found a new home in a safari camp.

The camp is managed by a guy named Jeffrey and he’s developed an amazing bond with the wild pelican who’s now known as Bigbird. He is massive.

The two go out on the water every morning in an attempt to teach Bigbird how to fish for food and it’s all worked out, watch the heart-warming story here.
