West Seattle wildlife: Another white-pelican sighting

We don’t know for sure whether this is the same American White Pelican spotted hanging around Lincoln Park/Lowman Beach two weeks ago (as seen here), but it’s the first report we’ve received since this stormy weekend, so we’re sharing it. Jon Anderson spotted it during one of today’s sunbreaks, in a pond near the South Transfer Station. Their usual range in our state is around the Columbia River.

  1. I doubt it’s the same one seen at Lincoln Park. A couple of others have been seen in the region since. My wife and I saw it this AM, with a couple of other birders (many more saw and reported it later on). A rarity here for sure, and a beautiful bird, period.

  2. This is cool to see. If that pond is where I think it is, that pond is a re-created wetland by the WSDOT
