I took a walk around Stearns Lake in Boulder County this afternoon, and I saw 1 white pelican out in the middle of the otherwise empty lake. It seemed like that small lake would have room for lots of pelicans. And that’s when I decided we should come up with a bird rescue and transfer program. Pull the seabirds from the oil, clean ’em up, and send them to other places around the country where they’ll be safe from oil for a while. They may go back to the Gulf of Mexico next year, but maybe they will stay in a new, clean environment this year. Maybe they’ll even breed.
