Video: Pelican flies around with GoPro on its beak

Posted Mar 1, 2014

What happens when you stick a camera on a pelican’s beak? The video above. Here’s the backstory behind this video:

A pelican appeared to be injured following a major storm at the Greystoke Mahale resort in Tanzania. The pelican was named Bigbird by the staff at the resort. The pelican was abandoned by the flock because it couldn’t fly.

The resort workers took the pelican under their wing (pun intended). The staff put a camera on its beak for the first flight. Bigbird flew around Mahale Mountain National Park.
