I'm calling this a Reddish Egret. If so, believe it's a first. Taken near Corpus Christi, Tx. It's a heavy crop-about 80 yds. or so away.

For size comparison, a snowy egret about the same distance away-

Yes, I do believe that is correct.
I've never seen one in person myself. :)

Thanks, Jake. Thought it was a tricolored when I took this or I might have worked a little harder to try for a decent shot. Got a week left here so maybe...

Nice shots. I think the 2nd one may also be a reddish egret but the white morph. Maybe someone else can shed some light. Would love to shoot one of these some day nice job.

Thank you, Miles. Snowies are pretty common here, so I'm fairly certain of that one.

The second bird is definitely a white morph Reddish Egret. Snowy Egrets have an all black bill. Your bird has the characteristic pink bill with the black tip. Same as your first bird!

I second that. Definitely a Reddish and White Morph Reddish. Bill is a giveaway.

Yes, both are Reddish Egret. Snowies are much smaller than the Reddish and don't have the two tone bill with the pink, as Jason pointed out. I'd be thrilled to find a white morph again when I travel to Florida.

How about that!! Dang-and I'll probably never see them again. We leave in 9 days and getting busy w/ packing up. I guess be thankful for what I did see and photograph. Reason to be right up to snuff on your IDs, huh? Thank you everyone for pointing this out.

If you have a shot showing its feet, that would clinch it for sure.

Ask and ye shall receive-another poor IQ shot but "footed". I turn this over to the experts-

Snowy Egret would have dark legs and yellow feet...the clincher for me...its a white morph or leucistic Reddish Egret. I would lean toward a leucistic Reddish Egret.
