Extraordinary video as a GoPro captures a pelican learning to fly

We’ve seen some pretty remarkable videos captured by GoPro and this is another of them. Bigbird was a pelican rescued by humans after a storm in Tanzania. When rescuers found Bigbird, the pelican couldn’t fly, so some of his human friends ‘ran up and down the beach flapping their arms’ to teach the bird how to fly.

A GoPro camera was strapped to the bird’s beak and we’re treated to a firsthand look of what it’s like to fly over the ocean as a pelican. [see also this post: a GoPro camera fell into a pigpen, watch the extraordinary footage it captured]
