A rare visitor

Our friend Don Bindler sent these remarkable photos and added: “This  pelican  has been a resident of Crescent Beach for several days.”

Ready for take off.

“The pelican is a juvenile. There has been a brown pelican hanging around Montauk for the past week. This may well be the same bird although there’s no way to be sure.”

Free flying

“In any case, this is a rare occurrence on Shelter Island and may be the first recorded pelican here.”

A well-deserved rest.
