Earlier today Caleb Putnam posted this:
Taken from Mich-Listers Facebook page yesterday - seen at Goodrich Park on White Lake in Whitehall at an unknown time yesterday. If anyone has a chance to check on this bird today, please do! Spots to check would be anywhere on the circumference of White Lake from Lake Michigan to Whitehall and potentially on the impoundments between the causeway and US-31. Please update us all right away if you confirm the bird as a Brown Pelican.
Now it's noon. Carol and I headed up there this morning. We were unable to find a Brown Pelican. However, on the Montague side from the Maple Grove Yacht Club parking lot we observed this American White Pelican flying and then landing along the shore a few hundred yards east of us. We totally lucked out to be at the right place and the right time for Year Bird #169 (if I were counting). We kept looking around White Lake but could not find another pelican. - Ric
