Notes:

I found 3 pairs of these egrets at my former university. I'm not sure what is their species.

unless we see the feet, it is hard to identify for yellow-beaked egrets are shared by five species here in our locality.

Thanks Alicelongmartin and SatyenMehta. Now I really have to look at the legs and the feet! Birdwatching time again!

Alice, the colour of the beak and legs and their size are the factors by which they can be identified. Its difficult sometimes.

Thanks SatyeMehta. I am a little confused about these egrets. How do you distinguish one from the other?
