Mahesh, welcome to Project Noah.
Can you please move the Stork to a separate spotting using the "edit this spotting" link above your name at the top of the page.
The same applies to your elephant spotting, one picture is only a fish eagle.
If you have problems with this please let us know by using the comments box, Thank you..

hmm...maybe not brown pelican...maybe spotted-billed pelican (Pelecanus philippensis) is more common in that range?

first pic looks like a species of stork with a cattle egret and 2nd and 3rd pics look like brown pelicans (Pelecanus occidentalis). One of the pelicans look hungry too! ;)
