Last Pelican flock rescued from oil spill released~Amy Wold
~A rehabilitated brown pelican, taken from oiled areas affected by the Deepwater Horizon disaster, is released back into the wild Wednesday on Raccoon Island, part of the Isle Dernieres Barrier Islands refuge system south of Cocodrie. The fledgling was reluctant to leave the rehabilitators who have cared for it since July 8, when it was discovered as a nestling.
