Janie Giltner: Tagged Birds  These are photos of the pelican taken by Janie at the lock and dam 14* on the IL (Illinois) side.   

July 31, 2014: Janie kindly e-mailed us, saying “I shot one of your pelicans with my camera. It's a green tag with black numbers reading 442! I was at the lock and dam 14* on the IL side. He was very happy eating fish healthy looking.  He told me to tell you hello! But I would love to know more about this bird If you have info.  I can send you a picture if you would like!” We forwarded Janie’s message to Jeff DiMatteo, the leader of the Pelican Banding Program; see our Letter 205 Pelican (American White Pelican) Banding Program. Jeff replied to Janie, “That pelican was one of 2000 pelican chicks banded as a flightless young on 26 June 2010 at the Marsh Lake pelican colony in Minnesota.” Later Janie reported her pelican sighting to THE NORTH AMERICAN BIRD BANDING PROGRAM - BIRD BANDING LABORATORY < http://www.pwrc.usgs.gov/BBl/ > as Jeff wished.
