NARRAGANSETT, R.I. (AP) A pelican that landed near docks in Rhode Island will likely remain stranded in chilly New England until after the end of the partial federal government shutdown.
The Providence Journal reports that the juvenile brown pelican who may have been steered north by recent high winds had become a local sensation delighting local bird watchers and dock workers who nicknamed him Bert.

Pelican stew anyone?
And this passes for News these days??
Believe it or not, we have pelicans here in eastern Kansas. They are not endangered nor are the in wildlife preserves. They are wild and free.
>>>said they cant get the needed federal permits to move him across state lines to a more southern location<<<
I think I see the problem. I tried to find the word “Pelican” in the text of the United States Constitution and it apparently was accidentally left out by the Founding Fathers.
I think rotisseried would be better with dry rub.
Somebody should have thought about making the filling out of Federal permits to move pelicans “across state lines” an essential Federal government function. Dumb move on the bureaucrats part to drop the ball on this.
This is how desperate the MSM is to try and pin blame on the president. A f**king pelican is now more important than national security in their eyes. These people are despicable, and no champion of the American people!
Well, this changes my mind. /s
So we need to pay up so 800,000 federal employees can go back to work to take care of birds that are too stupid to fly to where it is warm?
Transporting the pelican across state lines may be a violation of the Mann Act. On a recent drive I became very disturbed. The sight of all those infants lying in the gutters was bad enough but when I saw a gentleman in a three piece suit on the side of the road selling pencils I realized we were in real trouble.
Pelicans named Bert hardest hit!
They said the pelican is in a wildlife sanctuary now, that is a good place for it.
Too bad it wasn’t a Sandhill crane, the so called “ribeye in the sky”, because that is one great tasting bird! A pelican will have a fishy flavor considering all of the seafood it consumes. No thanks.
Jonathan Livingston Pelican always wanted to fly faster than the other pelicans.
But he ended up in a sanctuary instead.
Nope.....itll never work as a book.
During the Depression a guy was standing on a street corner holding a sign that said “Apples for Sale, $5,000 each”.
A guy stops, looks at the sign and say, are you crazy, how do you expect to sell any Apples?
The Seller responds, I only have to sell one.
