Hi Dee,
I was birding the Edmonds pier this morning and some other birders
alerted us to the AWPE flying over. Maxine Reid got a photo containing
34 Pelicans in the flock. I sent a message out over WhatsApp and other
birders were able to track the flock south to at least downtown

I'm always curious where the American White Pelican flocks are headed.
I don't recall seeing any reports of them feeding at inland waterways.

There were also at least 4 Brown Pelicans returning to the Edmonds
breakwater this morning after presumably feeding offshore. It was not
that many years ago a single pelican of any species in Puget Sound
would be a momentous sighting.
