A Little Blue Heron in its juvenile white phase, a Cattle Egret, a Snowy Egret, and a Great Egret are all egrets that to some degree are similar in looks. The juvenile Little Blue Heron is white with greenish-yellow legs and a pale bluish-grey bill with a dark tip.
The Cattle Egret is a smaller white-colored egret but is stocky in build and has a rust-colored streak and yellow bill. The Snowy Egret is also a small white egret, but it has black and yellow legs and feet with a mostly black bill.
The larger egret is the Great Egret which is white with black legs and a yellow bill. So here are the photographs which hopefully show these differences. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo. Enjoy!
