Hi guys. Haven't posted in quite some time due to a crazy schedule. Caught this guy in my backyard today. Of course it was cloudy and drizzling when he showed up. I believe it is a great egret but the two long tail feathers are making me wonder. Anyone know if this is an egret for sure?
Thanks--

100% crop from 20D with 100-400L @400mm

Thanks for the reply. We really don't get them up here very often. The bird book claims only migratory in this area.
That pic really didn't fair to well from the jpeg compression :-(
