American White Pelican

 American White Pelican, Ellenville, New York.

This individual spent several days on a pond in Ellenville, New York. Although not visible here, its right eye was missing or damaged. Interestingly a similar bird was reported from Massachusetts in 1997 and then seen again in April 2000 a few days after the Ellenville bird vanished. There is good reason to think this is the same individual wandering around in the northeast.
