Project Noah is a tool to explore and document wildlife and a platform to harness the power of citizen scientists everywhere.
Big white pelican.
Usually hangs around tropical warm waters I think. Not sure why he is here in NYC.
Big, hangs out alone.
Rare but you definitely see pelicans from time to time in natural areas of NY. Not a zoo escapee, but wild. Pelicans may wander widely from their usual habitat. You'd be surprised what shows up in NY as it is located in the Atlantic Flyway, a major migration route for birds of the Americas.http://wildobs.com/place/New-York-USA/Am...http://www.flickr.com/photos/mw13/569648...http://birdingdude.blogspot.com/2011/09/...
A Pelican in NY, that is odd, perhaps escaped from a Zoo?
