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 

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.
