Request to Report Banded Brown Pelicans

Juliet Lamb, PhD candidate from Clemson University, and her team banded 300 Brown Pelican chicks this summer with green plastic bands engraved with three-letter codes (from TAA to TLN). Juliet is studying when and where the young Brown Pelicans disperse away from their natal colonies. She is hoping that birders in Texas and Mexico will report sightings of banded juveniles. The web form for reporting the bands is projectpelican.weebly.com.   Report: band code, band color, date, and location of observation. Texas birds should have green bands with white letters.
