I guess the Brown Pelican is long gone. All that remain are memories and pictures. If anyone is interested, I uploaded a couple of yesterday’s pix to my web site (which was in need of an update) -- http://stevewalternature.com/ . The pelican did get a lot closer for later visitors.
As noted by Doug F. on another forum, the three Common Loons in the Jones Beach boat basin are interesting to look at – different than typically seen around here. So I did make a point of photographing them, as I did of the equally cooperative Black Scoters and Common Eider. Yea, a typical August day at Jones Beach. Throw in two Royal Terns that flew in and flew out.
