It's pretty obvious. The pelicans predecessors naturally selected for larger and larger beaks with skin flaps through the success of mutations that occur during meiosis and mitosis. Among other traits.

Traits like wings, feet, eyes ect. are homologous across many phyla. Wings work well for flight. That's why we build planes with them.
