An outy? From my neck of the woods, eh? Sorry if I ever took a snap at you. Fish gotta swim, birds gotta eat.
~ Nigel meeting Nemo

Nigel is a brown pelican who lives in Sydney Harbor and the secondary tritagonist of Finding Nemo (the main being Nemo). He is voiced by Geoffrey Rush.

History

Finding Nemo

Nigel flies to the dentist's office. The Tank Gang explains about dentistry to him. Nigel hears the dentist after his words. The dentist keeps him away from his office. The next day, he and the other sea creatures and pelicans hear Marlin's story why Nemo is lost. Nigel gets a crab off his wing and fetches it to the seagulls. Later that day, he visits Nemo again in the dentist office. He tells the story of Marlin why he lost Nemo. The next day, he takes Marlin and Dory to rescue Nemo after avoiding the angry seagulls and helping his son Gerald. Nigel later attempts to free Nemo, but the dentist notices that the pelican is invading his office. The dentist gets Nigel out of his office again. Nigel brings Marlin and Dory back to the reef. He says his last words, "I'm so sorry" and then flies off.
