Subject:[mou-net] Brown Pelican update, Le Sueur County

This morning when I arrived the juvenile Brown Pelican was flying low  
over the eastern side of German Lake. In flight it was best viewed  
from the north boat access. I was only able to view it for a few  
seconds until it disappeared due to distance and heat waves. John  
Hockema showed up, and shortly after he arrived a local fisherman  
showed up with a pontoon and offered to take us out to see the bird,  
free of charge. We boated to the southern side of the lake behind the  
island, where we found the bird sitting on a buoy. If it is perched  
behind the island on the south side, there is no where to view it from  
land, and thus the only way to see it would be from a boat. There have  
been a lot of fisherman on the lake today, and so your bets of  
hitching a boat ride are probably pretty good, although I can't  
guarantee that it'll be free.

I have uploaded a photo of the bird to the "Recently Seen" webpage on  
the MOU website. This is either a second, third, or fourth state  
record, as there were two reports of Brown Pelicans several weeks ago  
near Alexandria.
