The Dalmatian pelican (Pelecanus crispus) is the most massive member of the pelican family (Pelecanidae), and perhaps the world's largest freshwater bird. Dalmatian pelicans are elegant soaring birds, and their flocks fly in graceful synchrony. Pelecanus crispus is a short to medium distance migrant between breeding and overwintering areas.
