Seen by Karin Holzapfel and Andres Jarnegren from their sailboat at quite some distance (see photos taken by Karin Holzapfel) on the canal . Identified based on photos by Claus Holzapfel based on head shape and underwing pattern (see photo of bird taking off). I am aware of earlier report of an immature Pink-backed Pelican in the general region but believe that this one is a P. crispus.
