March 27, 2012 (San Diego’s East County)-- You might ask what a Pelican is doing inland at any of these East County Lakes: Lake Murray, Lake Jennings, Santee Lakes and Lindo Lake. Most people associate Pelicans with the sea coast, as do I. When I see Pelicans at La Jolla Cove it seems perfectly natural and there are always plenty of them to be seen. Of the two species of Pelicans in our area, The Brown Pelican and the American White Pelican, it’s the American White Pelican that is frequently seen at and around our lakes in the East County.
