We’ve been following the reports of numerous Brown Pelicans appearing sick and hungry on California beaches. Now, we’re hearing that the birds are heading eastward to find food — into the Delta and other inland waters. Brian Sullivan from eBird noted on the birding listervs that the sightings were popping up in their system as never before. We hope this problem resolves itself soon. One of our colleagues visited Avila Beach this weekend and saw more than 100 juvenile Brown Pelicans suffering.
