Meet this cute pelican named Mr.Percival that lives at Twinnies Pelican and Seabird Rescue in Australia. He and his partner have been waiting for 6 years to have a baby.
Actually, none of the eggs have ever hatched.
But one day, last year, the pelican finally had what he really wanted.
“Mr. Percival has never given up trying to have a baby pelican chick. He sits on his eggs with his partner that shares the incubation and the eggs have never hatched. He has been doing this for 6 years now and we felt so sorry for him as it’s so sad when he sees the others around him seeing baby pelicans,” reads the post on the Twinnies Pelican and Seabird Rescue Facebook page.
Mr. Percival and his partner were so happy.
“So we did this amazing thing for him as we wanted to make him really happy this time. We switched one egg over from one nest to the other,” the post continues. “Mr. Percival and his partner have been communicating with the egg and today the egg hatched and we just couldn’t believe how Mr. Percival was proud as punch.”
He is such a responsible dad.
