Examples of "pelecanus_onocrotalus"
There were more than 10,000 Caspian terns ("Sterna caspia") in the reserve during the 1980s, and there are also many royal terns ("Thalasseus maximus") and great white pelicans ("Pelecanus onocrotalus").
The great white pelican ("Pelecanus onocrotalus") also known as the eastern white pelican, rosy pelican or white pelican is a bird in the pelican family. It breeds from southeastern Europe through Asia and in Africa in swamps and shallow lakes.
The lake area has a large number of wintering waterfowl. Some of the species reported are "Marmaronetta angustirostris", "Podiceps cristatus", "Podiceps nigricollis", "Phalacrocorax carbo", "Pelecanus onocrotalus", "Mergellus albellus" and "Fulica atra".

The listing of these birds does not give any idea of their abundance or status. While some of the birds recorded below are residents, others are passage migrants. Some of these, such as the white stork and the lesser spotted eagle, may pass over Aammiq in flocks of hundreds at a time. Other migrants fly over in far smaller numbers. Species include: pygmy cormorant ("Phalacrocorax pygmeus"), white pelican ("Pelecanus onocrotalus"), greater flamingo ("Phoenicopterus rubber"), ferruginous duck ("Aythya nyroca"), osprey ("Pandion haliaetus"), Verreaux's eagle ("Aquila verreauxii"), peregrine falcon ("Falco peregrinus"), common crane ("Grus grus"), rock pigeon ("Columba livia").
This type of ecosystem is noted for its variety and large population of birds, some of them very rare.

The depression is a major freshwater basin of Mongolia and contains important wetlands of Central Asia. The wetlands are based on the system of interconnected shallow lakes with wide reed belts within a generally desert steppe. The wetlands support a number of rare migrating birds: Eurasian spoonbill ("Platalea leucorodia"), black stork ("Ciconia nigra"), osprey ("Pandion haliaetus"), white-tailed eagle ("Haliaeetus albicilla"), swan goose ("Cygnopsis cygnoides"), and bar-headed goose ("Anser indicus"). Only a few individuals of great white pelican ("Pelecanus onocrotalus") remain in the Great Lakes Basin in Mongolia. They nest in catchment areas of rivers and lakes that have abundant fish and vegetation.
The key list of birds reported by BirdLife International is: garganey ("Anas querquedula"), great white pelican ("Pelecanus onocrotalus"), fox kestrel ("Falco alopex"), pallid harrier ("Circus macrourus"), Savile's bustard ("Eupodotis savilei"), black crowned-crane ("Balearica pavonina"), African collared-dove ("Streptopelia roseogrisea"), Senegal parrot ("Poicephalus senegalus"), red-throated bee-eater ("Merops bulocki"), Sahelian woodpecker ("Dendropicos elachus"), piapiac ("Ptilostomus afer"), Sennar penduline-tit ("Anthoscopus punctifrons"), red-pate cisticola ("Cisticola ruficeps"), river prinia ("Prinia fluviatilis"), Senegal eremomela ("Eremomela pusilla"), purple glossy-starling ("Lamprotornis purpureus"), chestnut-bellied starling ("Lamprotornis pulcher"), black scrub-robin ("Cercotrichas podobe"), chestnut-crowned sparrow-weaver ("Plocepasser superciliosus"), Sudan golden sparrow ("Passer luteus"), bush petronia ("Petronia dentata"), black-rumped waxbill ("Estrilda troglodytes"), and waterbirds
The Great Lakes Hollow, in addition to its saline lakes, contains some of the most important wetlands of Central Asia. The wetlands are based on the system of interconnected shallow lakes with wide reed belts within the steppe. As a key part of the Central Asian Flyway, the wetlands support a number of rare and endangered migrating birds: Eurasian spoonbill ("Platalea leucorodia"), black stork ("Ciconia nigra"), osprey ("Pandion haliaetus"), white-tailed eagle ("Haliaeetus albicilla"), swan goose ("Cygnopsis cygnoides"), bar-headed goose ("Anser indicus"), and white pelican "Pelecanus onocrotalus".
A total of 90 indigenous mammal species have been recorded in the Magaliesberg Biosphere Reserve. These include the klipspringer (Oreotragus oreotragus), sable antelope (Hippotragus niger), leopard (Panthera pardus) and brown hyena (Hyaena brunnea). The bird diversity in the area is exceptional. In total, 46.6% of the bird species recorded in the southern African sub-region are found in the reserve. These include the Cape vulture (Gyps coprotheras), secretary bird (Sagittarius serpentarius), great white pelican (Pelecanus onocrotalus), martial eagle (Polemaetus belliccosus) and African grass-owl (Tyto capensis).
This harsh dry land with little vegetation and small amounts of salty water, when it is present at all, supports little wildlife all year round but is used by a large number of migratory birds. The hypersaline pan supports brine shrimp and a number of extremophile micro-organisms tolerant of the high saline conditions.(C.Michael Hogan. 2010.) In particularly rainy years the Etosha pan becomes a lake approximately 10 cm in depth and becomes a breeding ground for flamingos, which arrive in their thousands, and great white pelican ("Pelecanus onocrotalus").
The Atanasovo Lake is one of two salt-water lakes in the Black Sea region and contains rare and representative examples of wetland habitats. It is a hot spot for biodiversity, with many Red-Listed species of plants and animals. It is a well-known bottleneck site for migratory birds, with around 60,000 raptors and 240,000 storks, pelicans and cranes passing over the site and often landing in large numbers for staging. The highest numbers in Europe of migrating White Pelicans ("Pelecanus onocrotalus"), Dalmatian Pelicans ("Pelecanus crispus"), Marsh Harriers ("Circus aeruginosus") and Red-footed Falcons ("Falco vespertinus") have been recorded here.
Along with the regions in north such as the Cintra Bay and Dakhla Peninsula, the area is one of the most important wintering grounds for Eurasian spoonbill ("Platalea leucorodia leucorodia"). Breeding birds include white pelican ("Pelecanus onocrotalus"), reed cormorant ("Phalacrocorax africanus"), gull-billed tern ("Gelochelidon nilotica"), Caspian tern ("Hydroprogne caspia"), royal tern ("Sterna maxima") and common tern ("Sterna hirundo"), together with several species or subspecies with an African distribution, such as heron ("Ardea cinerea monicae") and Eurasian spoonbill ("Platalea leucorodia balsaci") and western reef heron ("Egretta gularis") (IUCN, 1987).
The bird sanctuary has about 165 species of birds; the lesser and greater flamingos, great white pelican "(Pelecanus onocrotalus)" and pink-backed pelican "(Pelecanus rufescens)" are the most dominant species, they arrive annually in large numbers as part of their migration during the winter season. Some of the other notable bird species recorded are: avocet, blackwinged stilt "(Himantopus himantopus)", blacksmith lapwing "(Vanellus armatus)", black-necked grebe "(Podiceps nigricollis)", bustards, carmine, darters, African fish eagle "(Haliaeetus vocifer)", geese, korhaans, pied kingfisher "(Ceryle rudis)", black-chested snake-eagle "(Circaetus pectoralis)", blue-cheeked bee-eater "(Merops persicus)", Cape teal "(Anas capensis"), kori bustard "(Ardeotis kori)", Hottentot teal "(Anas hottentota)", martial eagle "(Polemaetus bellicosus)", red-knobbed coot, "(Fulica cristata)", secretarybird "(Sagittarius serpentarius)", spoonbills, and white-faced whistling duck ("Dendrocygna viduata").
This huge bird is by a slight margin the largest of the pelican species and one of the largest living bird species. It measures in length, in weight and in wingspan. Its median weight is around , which makes it perhaps the world's heaviest flying bird species, although the largest individuals among male bustards and swans may be heavier than the largest individual Dalmatian pelican. More recently, six male Dalmatians were found to average and four females , around the same average weight as the great white pelican ("Pelecanus onocrotalus") and slightly lighter than mean body masses from other huge birds such as the trumpeter swan ("Cygnus buccinator") or Andean condor ("Vultur gryphus"). A mean estimated body mass for the Dalmatian pelican of was also published, around the same mass as the afforementioned largest swan and condor. It is either the heaviest or one of the heaviest birds native to Europe, its closest rivals in mass being mute swans ("Cygnus olor") and cinereous vultures ("Aegypius monachus"), which both weigh on average around , followed closely by great white pelicans and the whooper swans ("Cygnus cygnus"). It also appears to have one of the largest wingspans of any living bird, rivaling those of the great albatrosses ("Diomedea" ssp.) and the great white pelican.
