It’s just a pelican That plumage is pretty normal for them, I believe.

Agreed. This is a juvenile Brown Pelican, which normally has a brown overall with a white belly.

thought cormorant. now I'm not sure

There is a cormorant (either a Double-crested or a Neotropic) below that bird, though!

getting a Sandhill Crane feeling?

You mean the red on the head? That would appear to be some sort of optical aberration.

That's said. I can't quite make out the pelican in this bird. The posture seems to be too vertical, and where is the bill? Not that I have a better idea.
