This thread is about the order of these medium-sized and large waterbirds that have feet with all four toes webbed.
The Pelecaniformes consists of the families .....

 -  Ardeidae (herons)
 -  Threskiornithidae (ibises and spoonbills)
 -  Scopidae (Hamerkop)
 -  Pelecanidae (pelicans)
 -  Balaenicipitidae (Shoebill)

 :)  I hope I'm going to see some of these here. I'm starting with the few I have.

Wow! That's a lot. I like especially the monochrome oldies :).

I know birds' taxonomy is very complicated (and under constant change). I had planned to do other threads for cranes or flamingos or storks, but first I have to learn about their orders and families ... and as you wrote, this will take some time. But we should make time for that.
It would also be nice (and kind of important) to name the figures.

Sorry, triple post :-[ ;D.

@ widukind: It would be cool if you could erase your Flamingo pictures here
                    and put it there instead: http://animaltoyforum.com/index.php?topic=2056.0  :)
