Don't mean to be picky BP....But the smaller birds are Snowy Heron's...
It's rare that the egrets and these heron's mingle, at least up here...
Good shot of some beautiful birds...:|

Egrets have longer breeding plumes than herons. Other than that, the only difference between an egret and a heron is about 3 letters, but the Snowys are egrets. However, I do not see an Ibis anywhere in this picture.

LOL

O.k., you've established that I need to purchase a Sibley's guide before I post anymore bird pictures. Thanks for correcting my errors in bird identification.

There were probably close to 200 birds in close proximity to these. The FAWL guide mentioned several of them and it appears that I got them all mixed up.
