      Aquatic bird specialists, International Bird Rescue Research Center
      (IBRRC) is noticing a trend in California Brown Pelicans along the
      coastline from Monterey to San Diego and they need your help.

      An unusual number of birds are coming in thin and disoriented - being
      found on roads and in fields. What is remarkable is that many are
      adult pelicans. Often this behavior is associated with domoic acid
      from a marine algae but so far the birds exhibit no other typical
      neurological disorders.

      IBRRC is asking for your help in reporting ailing pelicans to your
      local rescue organization or by calling the toll-free California
      Wildlife Hotline 866-WILD-911. You are encouraged to leave information
      on dead pelicans there as well by pressing option 2.
