Regarding tagged American White Pelicans.
I photographed a tagged an AWPe in Chico on the 10th of September of
this year. After a little tracing, I contacted a biologist at the
Minidoka NWR in Idaho. The biologist stated that they had tagged 300
juvenile American White Pelicans on July 18th of this year. She
further stated that "their birds" usually end up spending the winter
in southern California.
If anyone is interested in contacting individuals responsible for
either tagging or receiving observed/retrieved AWPe tags, you may
contact me off-line.
