Pelican named Arvy survives frostbite, sent to sanctuary

In this Feb. 4, 2021, photo provided by the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary, Arvy, a brown pelican rescued from the icy Connecticut River on Jan. 27, sits in a bathtub at the home of Busch Wildlife Sanctuary hospital director Stephanie Franczak in Florida after the bird was flown to the Jupiter, Fla., wildlife sanctuary. Apparently blown far off course, Arvy is recovering from pneumonia and frostbite at the wildlife center. He will be released when he is strong enough to survive in the wild. Brown pelicans are not normally found in the Northeast. (Stephanie Franczak/Busch Wildlife Sanctuary via AP)
