Long Description of Sighting Report


On Nov. 12, 2010, around 11:15 p.m., my fiancée and I were on our way to NJ [New Jersey] and decided to take Rt. 13 up. On the way she had noticed, while driving across the Chesapeake Bridge, an unusual amount of dead pelicans1 on the bridge. Yes, pelicans. I assumed maybe they were hit by cars or something else, that was until I began to notice something very strange. All of the dead pelicans were exactly about a quarter [of a mile?] from each other, all lined up on the left side of the bridge with other birds around the body. Scary thing was... The bodies were not mangled at all. Almost like they just fell from the sky and were strategically placed like that. This went on for a while, but before we exited the bridge, when we saw lights in the water shaped like a diamond. The colors were blue, then red and then seemed to rotate and move around, then disappear. I was freaked out because while off the bridge, you still have a good visual of the water. And, the lights were still there. If anyone was in the VA [Virginia] area that night, you may remember that the sky was really clear and there were seemingly more stars out. The connection btw [between] the pelicans and the lights were [sic-was] more than a coincidence. I hope there is someone out there who can back me up. From what I’ve read, there was [sic-were] numerous sightings that night.

Note 1: I have traveled this bridge a few times and have not seen a pelican. However, seagulls find it a convenient place to park while not flying, and as in the text, I have seen them aligned in uniform segments, which I hadn’t bothered to measure, along the bridge.-CF-
