Cuba- Brown Pelican & Cuban Gnatcatcher

Another cover from the Cuban Festival of Birds. The pictorial postmark of the tiny Cuban Gnatcatcher (Polioptila lembeyei) cancelling the very large  2011 Brown pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis). On the stamp with the ordinary CDS  is the 10c, 2008  Cuban Solitaire (Myadestes elisabeth)
Thanks to my good friend CJ for sending these two Cuban covers
