Fewer of Oregon’s brown pelicans are feeling the natural urge to fly south for the winter, largely due to the availability of tasty human food on the coast. Rick Swart with the Department of Fish and Wildlife says some animal rehabilitators have pulled chicken bones, hot dogs, even potato chips, from the birds' large throat pouches. Swart says the birds are outgoing and not afraid to approach humans if they think they'll score a snack but it's better to simply observe and toss food scraps in covered trash cans provided at state parks, waysides and beach access points.
