It's raining Brown Pelicans

As of Feb.5, International Bird Rescue Research Center (IBRRC) has admitted a staggering 310 California Brown Pelicans since January 1st and they just keep coming. Our Los Angeles center has around 160 pelicans currently in care while our San Francisco Bay center has around 80.

Heavy rains, flooding and pollution from run-off are taking their toll on Brown Pelicans as seabird specialists, IBRRC, treat as many of these cold, wet wildlife casualties at both California seabird rescue clinics.
