Carol you can rely on Mitch. Please update Binomial (Scientific) name also.
I am not ordinarily a bird person.....I stand corrected. A Great Egret
This is must be great egret.. Mitch you are correct.. Such long neck and nose are to be referred..!!
Agreed - that's a Great Egret. The beak is the giveaway - Snowy Egrets have black beaks. Additionally, though you can't see the feet in this picture, Snowy Egrets are easy to identify from the bright yellow feet.
Nice photo, but that's a Great Egret, Ardea alba.
