WRC Pelican Update

Got some great news from Tami at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center regarding December's pelican emergency:

Hi Sharon :-)

Thought you may like a pelican update for your blog... Of the 10 pelicans, three will need to be placed due to chronic wing fractures. We're placing them (hopefully) with the Tracy Aviary in Salt Lake City. Five birds will be flying to Florida this Thursday (thanks to Northwest Airlines for discounted cargo rates) where they'll be met by staff members from C.R.O.W. Rehabilitation Center, Sanibel Island. They'll be released at the refuge on Sanibel, joining several other flocks numbering in the hundreds. The remaining two birds we hope will be releasable but they need to maintain their weight before we can send them down to CROW.
