Malaysian Birds - Large Water birds

SULIFORMES: Phalacrocoracidae

       
  2.Little Cormorant

 

 
       
  3. Great Cormorant  
       

PELECANIFORMES: Pelecanidae

       
  4.Great White Pelican

 

 
       
  5. Spot-billed Pelican  
       

PELECANIFORMES: Threskiornithidae

       
  6. Glossy Ibis
