Birds of different feathers flock together.....

It was a bird convention on the bulkhead of the ferry landing on the Bolivar Peninsula.   We were driving to Galveston, and had to wait for the ferry, so I jumped out to snap a few shots.  This is mostly Cormorants and American White Pelicans (Pelecanus erythrorhynchos).   There may be an Anhinga (Anhinga anhinga) or two in there.  There were some Brown Pelicans to the right of this shot, but I cropped them because it made the picture to long.

What got me was the White Pelicans snoozing out on the piers.  I tried to do the geometry of how they got into that shape, but my geometry was rusty.
