The Galápagos Islands

Brown Pelican

As you might have come to expect, the Galápagos Islands have their own endemic subspecies of Brown Pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis urinator), which often nests in mangroves, so you can go right underneath them in the pangas.
Below (left) is an adult bird preening, and on the right is an immature.
