Very excited about this one.
Was able to get out birding this morning and found these two lovely birds.
It shouldn't be too hard.

I thought they were American White Pelican ;-)

Congrat's Liam! I was planning to go to Aransas NWR next winter to get these. Didn't know you could get them in Georgia! Did you get to hear their call ??
