Colorado Parks & Wildlife - Species Data - White Pelican Nesting Area
Colorado Parks and Wildlife Biologists, District Wildlife Managers, and Researchers
WhPelicanNestingArea is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing Nesting Areas for White Pelican (Pelecanus erythrorhyncos) in Colorado. Nesting Areas are defined as those islands and/or beach areas where any pelican nests are found. Human disturbance should be eliminated from these areas from April 15 to August 15. This information was derived from field personnel. A variety of data capture techniques were used including drawing on mylar overlays at 1:50,000 scale USGS county mapsheets and implementation of the SmartBoard Interactive Whiteboard using stand-up, real-time digitizing at various scales (Cowardin, M., M. Flenner. March 2003. Maximizing Mapping Resources. GeoWorld 16(3):32-35).
