USA - Pelicans Dying in California... Brown pelicans are seen playing among themselves at a bird rescue in Cayucos, California. Scores of starving baby pelicans - emaciated, cold, and too weak to fly - are washing up on California beaches in disturbing numbers this spring, according to wildlife rescuers and state officials. Toxic algae may be poisoning the birds. Phil Klein/photo
