067-01-2011 Brown Pelican

Unquestionably one of 2011’s major birding highlights for western Pennsylvania was the chance discovery by Rodgers of this bird as she drove past this small municipal reservoir in the late afternoon.  Fortunately, the bird remained overnight and was seen and photographed by scores of local birders.  There are two previous inland Pennsylvania records, 25 September 2004 on Lake Carey, Wyoming following the passage of Hurricane Irene and one found dead 5 November 2008 at Raystown Lake, Huntingdon.
