Default Can soneone help me ID these please?

I know the first is a Pelican, but I don't know what type, and I think that Pelicans are rare around here, so I need to know what type it is before I can find out.

The next two are pretty common around here.

I have more photos if it will help.

Here is one of a turkey vulture that shows the red head and face detail a little more.



Here's the black Vulture, I don't think I have a shot in flight but, I'll look.

Thanks. My mistake. Great Blue Herons we got. Not a lot, but we've got some. I've just never seen one from below.

Sure thing. Glad I could help. I posted the black Vulture too, but from what I see I think it the Turkey Vulture.

No. Turkey Vulture sounds right. I've seen them feasting on road kill, but couldn't pick them out from the other soaring birds in the area.
