Bruce,

I don't know about Alaskan white pelicans, but I have spent
time watching Florida brown pelicans.  They are never far from
water, and, at least in my observations, don't fly very high.

Also they skim for short periods of time, and then flap for
a while, and then skim again.  I don't recall Arnold mentioning
any flapping.

And wasn't there an independent observer on the ground who watched
as they flew overhead, and mentioned that they drove his compass
crazy??

Whadda we got, giant, metallic, highly magnetic pelicans????

Time to send for Mulder and Scully!

Bob
