Yesterday afternoon (September 4th), David Schutz of Coquitlam, BC reported
a BROWN PELICAN flying past Lighthouse Marine Park at Point Roberts. This is
the first sighting I have heard of this year in the Puget Sound/Georgia
Strait area.

Also seen by David at Point Roberts were 40 COMMON TERNS and a PARASITIC
JAEGER. Brian Self, birding Point Roberts at a different time yesterday,
found 130 COMMON TERNS, but missed the pelican.

Who knows what will show up next? We are looking hard for Elegant Terns,
but no luck yet!
