A pelican was photographed by Jackie Weinstock at 2 pm SAturday, just off of hen island in north hero. Hen island is between knight’s island and the western shore. She has posted the photo on her Facebook page.
At 8:30, terry marron, and I and 4 others watched the pelican fly over our heads at a tree line of about 30 feet. I ran over to see if it landed in carry bay , but it was not there. As I walked over to our eastern inland sea side, I watched it leave a small Bay Area and head north along the shore.
It is an adult white pelican and when floating, display a broad black stripe along the wing.the bill is unmistakable.
I hope others are able to find it today!
North hero, vermont
