THe Brown Pelican was sitting on the first small bay on the left on the road to Big Island, Niangua Arm of Lake of the Ozarks, Camden Co.,  about 6:30 am Friday. It flew in circles around that bay stopping in various locations, dove a couple of times, sat still enough for one picture and flew out of site to the left. This was my third attempt to see it. 

Also, on a walk at Taberville Prairie CA There were several SHort-eared Owls that jumped up as single birds, a flock of 5 Smith's Longspurs in the short grass on the ridges. A large flock of Brewer's Blackbirds at the cattle farm north of Taberville on B highway.

Josh Uffman called:
After 2.5 hours of searching this evening, they did NOT see the BROWN
PELICAN.
BUT with all the difficult to access areas, this does not mean it's gone.
Early AM and end of the day seem the best times to see the bird.
Josh will be searching tomorrow AM.
