The Pelican is a common sight around water, and as such I think often they are treated a bit unfairly compared to Elephants and other creatures. They do seem to survive well so that is an added bonus, plus they look unusual with the large bill and the yellow coloring around the eye. This guy is from the family Pelecanidae, the Genus Pelecanus and is species P. conspicillatus
