[Tweeters] White Pelicans

March Point has been good for seeing Am. white pelicans...last month one
afternoon I saw a large flock of them flying in the distance with a long,
wavering line of about 100 Great blue herons (from the nearby rookery)
fishing in the foreground. And dozens of Caspian terns between the herons
and pelicans. The tide must have been just right.

Does anyone know if these pelicans are too young to reproduce? Maybe
they're subadults? I've been wondering if the large groups that congregate
at March Point and on Whidbey every summer are too young to nest.
