I lived in Peru, I've been there when "El Nino" striked in the 80's. I walked the beaches and I saw about the same scenario.
The "anchoveta" is a little fish which is the key of this situation. The waters got lot warmer now so the anchoveta moved to colder waters far away.
That means no food. All dead pelicans found had empty stomachs, according to last official investigations, in other words, they starved to death. The
dolphins eat anchoveta too.
I reapeat, I saw that happen before, I used to go fishing there.
Even without "El Nino", every year about the end of summer in Peru (march - april), many dead birds are found on the beaches, those are the old
The only thing I find hard to explain is the information about the damage organs and broken ears in the dolphins.
If you understand spanish, this charts will help you to understand it.
