Pelecanus schreiberi

Pelecanus schreiberi is a fossil pelican described by Storrs Olson from Early Pliocene deposits in the Yorktown Formation of North Carolina. It was a large species with distinctive features suggesting that it represents an extinct lineage with no living descendants. The specific epithet commemorates Ralph W. Schreiber, a former curator of birds at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County and an authority on pelicans.
