My apologies for not questioning Jim's response.  I was correct the first time.  The first report in CACHE is MAY 30, the day after it was first reported.

Was the Brown Pelican really around a month before anyone in the birding community noticed? I can't find any mention of one in April in the MOBirds-L archives and I drove down (barely beating sunset) the day I first saw it reported to MOBirds-L, which was May 29, 2012.

Cheers,
