After much searching we spotted the Cinnamon Teal winging into the pond and it quickly paddled back into the reeds. We waited over an hour with 8 other birdwatchers for the bird to reappear. Finally we had to leave but we did get a good look at it as it flew in.

As Jeff Schultz and I were heading out in the early dawn to find the Cinn. Teal we were talking about our statagy when a bird flew in across the water and landed on a partialy submerged log. Becaus eof the poor lighting we dismissed it as a Great Blue Heron which were all over in that area. With our interest on finding the Teal we travelled a few more steps then both of us stopped and turned toward each other. "Is that a..." "Did you just see a..."was all we could get out when the Brown Pelican took off and flew out over the reeds heading toward the marina. We had not brought our cameras because of the long hike facing us so no photos were taken. We decided to keep the observation to ourselves except a call to our friend Scott Jennex. Later that week reports of a Brown Pelican came in from around Ohio and Canada along the shores of Lake Erie.
