I would appreciate it if you could forward this to Calbirds, as I am not
On 26 March 2011, Jimmy McMorran and I located a banded Brown Pelican on
San Clemente Island. The left leg had a field-readable alphanumeric band
that read A94 (white text on blue band), while the right leg had a USFWS
band. The bird was alive and well. I would not be posting this to the
statewide email list, if not for the fact that we've heard nothing back
from the BBL regarding this bird's origin. Thanks in advance for any

- International Bird Rescue (IBR)is currently doing a post release study on rehabilitated brown pelicans in California. Each brown pelican rehabilitated and released from the clinics in Northern and Southern California are fitted with a blue color band with white lettering and a silver federal band.
This particular bird was banded and released 2/17/2009 as an "after third year" bird in Berkeley. If you see any of the birds please report them to the bird banding lab and reporting them directly to International Bird Rescue would be greatly appreciated as well.
Below is the link and when reporting them to IBR just go to "Contact" and there is a link that says, "Report Blue Banded Pelicans".
