[CT Birds] heads-up for White Pelicans

There have been a few American White Pelican reports from the
northeast over the past few days. Today at 1pm, 8 White Pelicans were
seen in Providence, RI. With the crummy weather, they may have been
downed somewhere in Rhode Island. There's a decent chance they
continue their journey and ride northerly winds to the coast, then
possibly turning west and following the coastline through CT.

White Pelican sightings in CT are usually of birds flying by, often
following the coast. Keep an eye out tomorrow for these birds, and if
you're lucky enough to see them, get the word out as soon as you can
so others may be able to intercept the birds if they are migrating.

Maybe a long shot, but chance favors the prepared mind, or something
like that :)
