The Artless Fisher

Standing on a bamboo platform on the middle of the Dhaka National Zoo lake, three snowy white pelicans try to keep themselves warm by exposing their plumages and skins to direct sunlight at a sun-kissed winter morning on Monday. The population of the

prodigious bird with enormous throat pouch, oversised bill, sinuous neck and big, dark body is facing extinction due to mindless poaching and loss of habitat.   —Md Nasir Uddin
