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.
