BISMARCK, N.D. -- The Fish and Wildlife Service is investigating the deaths of thousands of young white pelicans at the Chase Lake National Wildlife Refuge in central North Dakota, a year after thousands of adult birds abruptly left the refuge. At least 8,000 white pelican chicks may have died over the past two months, spokesman Ken Torkelson said. "The difference is, last year the adults left first," Torkelson said. "This year, the young have died and the adults have no reason to stick...

Wildlife officials estimate 18,850 breeding adults have returned to this 4,385-acre refuge in central North Dakota, which had been known for a century as the home of the largest nesting colony of...

But for the plan to work, the pelicans will have to return to the refuge near Medina. Wildlife officials are confident they will come back - and earlier than normal. "We're predicting they'll start coming back next week," said Ken Torkelson, a spokesman for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in...

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- Pelican nesting grounds will be off-limits to the public this year at a refuge in central North Dakota while biologists plan their most extensive study ever of the big birds. Biologists still are baffled about why some 28,000 birds showed up to nest at the refuge in early April but took off in late May and early June, abandoning their chicks and eggs. The 4,385-acre Chase Lake National Wildlife Refuge north of Medina had been the site of the largest nesting colony of...
