Watch This Pelican Learn To Fly For The First Time

No. Pelicans aren't cars. They aren't planes. They aren't trains. They don't run on gasoline at all. But that doesn't make this any less cool.

Meet Big Bird. Big Bird is a pelican in Tanzania. He lost his flock and is all alone. Somehow, researchers attached a GoPro to his beak and were able to capture footage of his first flight.


Pretty amazing stuff, though, as a human, I'm not sure how I'd feel about having a GoPro forcibly attached to my face. Maybe he signed off on it beforehand.
