Great Egret ??

While taking this shot I ASSUMBED this was a juvenile Blue Heron. Dew to the fact an adult GBH was several feet away and a nesting pair 1000 feet away.

While watching for several hours this bird never attempted to catch a fish or eat, just drink. Which also made me think this was a juvenile GBH.

After getting home and looking at the images, I thought I better look this one up.

Now I'm not so sure if this is a juvenile GBH. From past experience Herons and Egrets did not play well together.



Any ideas what this bird is?



Thanks for looking
Jeff

Looks like an adult great egret.
