Caught this guy and his friend in several locations today up and down the creek. His friend is a snowy egret. "Snowy" will have her own spotting series. The duck friend that appears in picture 4 is a mystery to me. Not sure what kind he is.
The Great Egret (Ardea alba), also known as the Great White Egret or Common Egret, White Heron, or Great White Heron is a large, widely-distributed egret. It is sometimes confused with the Great White Heron in Florida, which is a white morph of the closely related Great Blue Heron (A. herodias). Note, however, that the name Great White Heron has occasionally been used to refer to the Great Egret. - Paraphrased from Wiki
