Thanks smutnee80 for the ID

This species is migratory. It is not endemic to the Philippines. There are expert bird observers coming to see the birds. Maybe I will get an answer to this species ID.

Snowy Egret is only found in the new world :) Little Egret is the equivalent of the snowy egret in the old world, but still has yellow feet. You can see one of this guys feet above the water and it's black
