For the 2nd time in history one of the most strange species of sea birds was spotted in Walla Walla county and bird watchers freaked. According to news reports, a marine brown pelican was spotted on Cobble Island just off the lower Snake River and lots of people witnessed it. White pelicans are not rare but brown pelicans are a marine bird and are rarely seen this far from the coast line.
