This bird guano is recognizable by its large size, its characteristic body and beak, and the elegant glide flight. It has a dark brown plumage on its back, back, tail and part of its wings. His belly and chest are whitish, and neck varies from white to black according to the station. The upper beak is yellow with red tip, while the bottom has a "bag" light blue that used to capture and store fish after launch and dive at high speed in the water. The pelican lives along the coast, where it forms large colonies, and the guano islands located in an ideal place to breed and nest.
