After looking at photo 2 and enlarging it the best I could on a poor monitor, it does appear to me that I see yellow feet on this egret. That would mean it is indeed a Snowy Egret. I have a link to a spotting of a yellow egret I have if one wishes to compare. http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/123...

Looks like a white. Snowy Egrets have black bills with yellow near the eye, white egrets have all yellow bills. :)

Seeing as you state the feet were yellow it is for certain a Snowy Egret.
The Snowy Egret scientific name is Egretta thula. It would be great if you could add this to your spotting.
