Great capture of this Reddish Egret, Bill! It looks like he's spotted a potential snack.

I don't see anywhere as many GBHs in my neck of California (Sacramento area) as I remember from 10 years or so ago. These are from March 2021 at Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge

Intermediate Egret (Ardea intermedia) (external link) by Paolo Dolina (external link), on Flickr

A stocky egret that is larger than Cattle and Little Egrets, but smaller than the Great Egret. Often confusing and difficult to identify, this bird is truly intermediate between potential confusion species. Things to look for include a yellow bill that is shorter than Great Egret but longer than Cattle Egret, a relatively rounded head, and shorter legs than Great Egret, approaching Cattle Egret. In Asian populations the bill becomes black during the breeding season; these birds can be distinguished from Little Egret by their completely black feet and shorter bills. Like most egret species, associates with all types of water bodies including wet fields and usually flocks with other egrets.
