I believe this to be a Great White Heron (the White Morph of a Great Blue), or possibly a Juvenile Little Blue Heron. Another possibility is the white morph of a Reddish Egret, although I don't think that's what it is. Can anyone confirm or deny please?

Thanks.

Gonna have to go with Ron here and say Little Blue...head structure isn't right for the Greats

Thanks to you both. They looks so much alike in my Sibley's that I just couldn't be sure.

Thanks again!!

Nice shots Anne. Definitely juvi Little Blue. The two-tone bill and greenish-yellow legs are good indicators. I've also yet to see one that didn't have a touch of grey showing on the tips of its primary flight feathers, seen clearly in your second shot.
