- At about 12:20 PM I saw the Brown Pelican on the water with a flock
of American White Pelicans.The birds were near the Rodman Slough
Bridge and in fact were seen as I drove across the bridge.However,
shortly after as I was on the phone with Jim Matzinger the Brown
Pelican flew across the Nice-Lucerne Cutoff road back towards the
lake.Additional searching did not turn up the bird.
There is a Tundra Swan (Imm.) feeding just West of the Rodman Slough Island. The bird didn't seem to mind that I was only about 50 yards from it. Also, just east (20 yards)of the Rodman Slough Bridge there is a Phainopepla. This is the exact place I saw two of them earlier in the year on the North side of the road.
