This afternoon while photographing more salmonid predation activity at the mouth of Alsea Bay a juvenile brown pelican flew in and briefly landed among the foraging birds. This is a FOY for me. While at that location I observed 46 Aleutian Cackling Geese approach Alsea Bay from the north and west of Hwy 101. They continued south and the turned over Waldport and followed the river to my location where they abruptly turned south down the beach and out of sight. They're definitely taking the long route to the Aleutians! Oh, and make that 45 ACG as one was a cackler as Id'ed from my photos.
