American White Pelican vs. Great Egret 

These birds were far offshore on a spit of sandbar.  They never did raise their heads.  Before I could go back and get my spotting scope, it started pouring rain, so these are the best shots I have.   I thought their overall shape, posture, & fact they were in a pretty tight social group was more on the side of American White Pelican, but idk.  There is a Ring-billed Gull on the far left for reference.  1545523811_DSC08837ed-Copy.thumb.jpg.3a61c8e86a734b6fcf48b0c5ac8e929b.jpg
