Galatee Films collection. Initially ID'ed as Pink-backed Pelican (Pelecanus rufescens). Comments from KMcGowan. 'These are actually Great White Pelican (Pelecanus onocrotalus)', based on these notes, 'The clean white backs (worn, but clean) contrasting sharply with the deep black flight feathers, white tail, dusky upper mandible, bright yellow pouch, and extensive yellow skin around the eyes are all onocrotalus characters, not rufescens. Pink-backed should have dirty gray backs, light blackish flight feathers, unicolored dull bills, dusky tails, and only a small patch of skin around the eyes'. Changed ID to Great White Pelican on 14Dec2011, BMClock
