Fish markets

The Sydney Fish Market is home to many birds that hang around in packs hoping to acquire some food, mainly from patrons that are stupid enough to eat their seafood lunches on the outdoor tables (i.e. me!). Most notorious are the seagulls: while one distracts you on one side, another swoops in and steals all your sashimi in one beak-full! Pictured here, however, is the much larger pelican (can you spot all 5?) - don't wanna fight with that one!
