The Expansion of Brown Pelicans Into the Chesapeake Bay Region" presented by
the mid-1900s, Brown Pelicans seriously declined along the Atlantic and
Gulf coasts of the United States and were eventually listed as a
threatened species. Historically, pelicans had never been
recorded as a nesting species in Maryland or anywhere to the north. As
pelican populations were recovering from the impacts of DDT, Dave
discovered Marylandís first Brown Pelican nesting in 1987. Since
wandering into the Middle Atlantic States, Brown Pelican populations
have increased dramatically. The remarkable expansion of local Brown
Pelicans in the region will be described. Come learn how adults
feed tiny chicks, and where Maryland nesting pelicans spend their
winters, along with other snippets of the natural history of this
fascinating water bird.
