Along the banks of the Willamette River near Oregon’s western coast a pelican was in crisis.

It had been injured and was unable to fly, leaving the 13-pound bird trapped.

Rescuers couldn’t reach the pelican for days as winter weather set in and it was in danger of starvation.

But as conditions improved, the bird was captured and shipped to California where it enjoyed warm sunshine and large pools of water at the San Diego Sea World.

Then on Tuesday the pelican, which affectionally was named “Pelly,” made its final flight on a small plane to Carlsbad, New Mexico where it will live out its days at the Desert Willow Wildlife Rehabilitation Center educating local youth about wildlife and conservation.
