The FANG companies, combined with investor favorites Apple and Microsoft, account for about 17% of the S&P 500's $26 trillion market capitalization, making reaction to their quarterly results key to Wall Street sentiment.

Aerial photo not clear picture of North Dakota pelican count

Aerial photo not clear picture of North Dakota pelican countFederal wildlife officials have learned that conducting an aerial census of American white pelicans nesting in south-central North Dakota is better done when the big-billed birds are visible on the ground - and not in flight. The nesting colony at Chase Lake National Wildlife Refuge is the largest in North America and biologists believe the birds' population is down only slightly from last year, despite air-to-ground photos that showed only a meager turnout of breeding adults. Acting Refuge Manager Drew Williams said the only time biologists could book a pilot and an airplane equipped to take pictures of the nesting area was during a June afternoon, and at the same time most adult birds were probably feasting on small fish and salamanders from prairie lakes up to 100 miles (160 kilometers) away.
