|I think it is a Peruvian Pelican, may be I am wrong then donīt hazitade to correct me.|
The Peruvian Pelican (Pelecanus thagus) is a member of the pelican family.
It lives on the west coast of South America, from Lobos de Tierra Island in Peru to Pupuya Islet in Chile.
These birds are dark in colour with a white stripe from the top of the bill, up to the crown and down the sides of the neck. They have long tufted feathers on the top of their heads.
The main breeding season occurs from September to March. Clutch size is usually two or three eggs. Eggs are incubated for approximately 4 to 5 weeks, with the rearing period lasting about 3 months.
This bird feeds on several fish species, showing a strong preference for Peruvian Anchovies. It feeds by plunge-diving, like its close relative the Brown Pelican.

good moment with nice note!
Good POV, details, composition and POV!
An excellent capture, but I feel it lacks some contrast.
Hope yo like my ws.
Great pose, but I agree with Carmen that the values seem a bit dull. I did a workshop for you -- see how you like it with a bit more contrast.
I love your picture. My only comment would be to try not to cut the feathers next time. In the field I try to crop less, leaving me ample space to recompose the picture later without cutting interesting details.
Well captured in action, seems to be a huge bird. TFS
