      There have been several immature pelicans hanging out on the pier in Point Arena.  One died and the other two are probably starving to death.  Several agencies have been contacted but nobody has shown up.  Does anyone know of someone that will actually do something?  Thanks in advance for the help.

      Hi Jeff (and others), There is a massive influx of young pelicans this year. It must have been a good year for reproduction in Baja California. The down side

        Hi Jeff (and others),



        There is a massive influx of young pelicans this year. It must have been a
        good year for reproduction in Baja California. The down side of that is the
        young pelicans don't always know what to do. It is pretty normal for there
        to be problems like this when so many young birds are around. I am not sure
        how much the ocean conditions are influencing this, but I don't believe that
        they are starving for lack of food, but just because there are so many young
        birds trying to figure out how to make a living.



        I have been told by Ronnie James that large numbers of pelicans are being
        reported to rescue centers and it is hard for them to respond to all of the
        calls and if they do take them in, it is very expensive to keep them alive.



        The best thing to do is to pretty much leave them on their own unless you
        see one that is being adversely affected by human activities (fishing hooks
        and lines for example). This is unfortunately a part of the natural process.



        Best, Ron
