I found the most beautiful Brown Pelican yesterday. It was posing patiently in front of the Chit Chat Cafe at the base of the Pacifica Pier. I’d gone there to scope out the storm damage. Sure enough, a chuck of the sidewalk was missing. The waves blasted rock through the sea wall and sucked out the material under the sidewalk, which promptly collapsed. Our public works group was jolly on the spot.
I posted the Pelican on Facebook and got a comment that this bird was famous. It had it’s own web site. It’s a rehabilitated bird banded K-15. I reported it this morning. Hope to see it again. Such a stunning sight.
If you see K-15 or any blue-banded bird please report here.
