As far as the Montauk Pelican info, I received a excellent photo and report late Sunday evening, of an immature Brown Pelican - with a metal right leg band(not readable, but clearly visible), seen Sunday afternoon on the Town of Southampton Commercial Fishing Dock. I believe this matches the description of the Montauk bird.
An extensive search this morning - 8am-11am- of that area - from west Shinnecock Inlet to Post La Bridge, Quogue - was not successful in relocating the bird. Various docks and coves on the “mainland” side of the bay were also checked. A word of caution- there is possibly another breach of the dunes again near the commercial dock. Equipment was attempting to pile more sand on the oceans side, however two hours prior to high tide, the waves were already cresting over the dune, and spilling on to Dune Rd.
