Dalmatian Pelican

Clicked on: December 31, 2012 (16:04 hrs)

After returning from Bharatpur, called up Brijender (the guide) to find out whether this Pelican is a Dalmatian Pelican or a Great White Pelican.

The guide said that the Pelican we spotted is a Rosy Pelican (a.k.a. Great White Pelican).

However as per Wikipedia: The Great White Pelican differs from the Dalmatian Pelican by its pure white, rather than greyish-white, plumage, a bare pink facial patch around the eye ...

So i'm going with Dalmatian Pelican.
