Along with the giant pouch, the pelican is short-legged with a big body, and it appears rather clumsy on land. However, once in the water they are strong swimmers and use their webbed feet to push through the water. They are also splendid fliers and can soar like eagles with their giant wings. Getting up in the air, however, can be challenging without the help of the wind. Pelicans must run over the water, beat their big wings, and pound the surface of the water with both feet in unison to get enough speed for takeoff.
