Yes, one objection is that Arnold's estimates of speed and
distances must have been (very) wrong for pelicans to be an
acceptable hypothesis.

This ties in with my previous (several years ago) challenge to
"draw a map"  to show how Arnold's reported speed and directions
of travel (eastward and then turning southward briefly) would
compare with the direction(southward) and speed (50 mph or less)
 of assumed pelicans.

It is my contention that there is no "map" that would produce a
sighting consistent with Arnold's description of what happened
if the objects were... pelicans.....
