Found an American White Pelican by the two islands at the upper end of the
Whitney Point, NY reservoir this evening. This is a first Broome record in
several years. What an amazing bird. The bird must have dropped in after a
strong cold front passed by as bird was not there this morning or early
afternoon.  The bird was fishing with its massive pouch bill and catching a
lot of small fish. With northwest winds tonight, hopefully he will stick
around for others to enjoy. There was a small group of people who joined me
to watch this most impressive bird.
