Pelican di Putrajaya

White Pelican, Pelecanus onocrolatus, Pelikan

This is a species purposely introduced to the new city for landscape. They become a permanent resident in Putrajaya Lake, adding a foreign touch of nature to the local surroundings. The lake itself is designed to be a water catchment area for Putrajaya. There is a platform built by the lake for the birds feeding session conducted everyday by the Putrajaya Wetland management. The lake attracted a lot of wild species from surroundings area and became a crucial sanctuary for them. Migratory birds also occur from time to time.
