We had a Brown Pelican fly directly over us around noon today while standing on the rock jetty near the base of the VZ Bridge at Ft. Wadsworth.
It circled once and then continued under the bridge and was last seen heading towards the general direction of the Staten Island Ferry terminal. There were loads of fish in Raritan Bay today, with Stripers seen feeding on bunker close offshore, and a few dozen seals getting into the mix as well. -M -- Michael Shanley III Dean of Students Grades 5/6 Math/Science Teacher Staten Island Academy http://statenislandacademy.org Successful students -- achieving their goals in school and in life -- are at the center of Staten Island Academy.
