There is a debate among the two birders I know if they’re brown pelicans or white pelicans. They sure look brown but brown pelicans aren’t supposed to migrate over Austin. Thoughts?

- Dogs in heat are not allowed in off-leash areas
- Rabies vaccinations are required for all dogs as required by State Law
- Owners/handlers must clean up after their dogs and deposit waste into a trash can
