Foggy White Birds

While in Texas this past winter, I saw a lot of American White Pelicans that were wintering on the Aransas NWR. Early one morning, we had a nice layer of fog settle over the refuge, where we came upon some pelicans.

In this image, a large group of white, wading birds were busy feeding in the refuge pool. The group was mostly American White Pelicans, but a small handful of Great Egrets were present, as well as some small shorebirds:

As we slowly made our way along the coast, we came upon a pair of American White Pelicans that were close to us and busy foraging:
