Pacific Brown Pelican Survey
May 18 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Where: 18 sites along Oregon’s Coast from Chetco Point on the south coast to to Fort Steven’s on the north coast
“We ask volunteers to conduct the count for at least 1 hour during a 4-hour window ending at civil twilight (about 9pm) on May 18.
“Although the Brown Pelican was removed from the Endangered Species List in 2009, new threats are challenging this bird’s survival. In recent years this species has suffered huge nest failures on its breeding grounds off southern and Baja California, which is thought to be tied to declines in their main food source, forage fish (primarily anchovies).”
