Intermediate Egret

Intermediate Egret hunting
There are a lot of white egrets and it took me a quite close look into my book to feel quite sure about their names now. I'd say this one's an Intermediate Egret (Ardea intermedia) as the bill is yellow and does not extent behind the eye. I haven't got a picture of the very common Cattle Egret, but there is one of the Great Egret. Guess where I took them? Sure, Yellow Waters.
