VIDEO: New pelican at the National Aviary

PITTSBURGH — A rescued brown pelican has found a permanent home in Pittsburgh’s National Aviary, and the public can vote on her name.

The pelican was rescued after suffering a wing injury, arriving at the aviary in December from a wild bird rescue center in Florida.

While the bird has recovered from her wing injury, she’s unable to fly long distances.
