Wow! Beautiful photo, Spyonabird... I love the displaying feathers! (Just so you know, that's actually a Great Egret :classic_wink:).

Snowy Egret at Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge, SC  3/14/20

Great photo! That is a Great Egret, not a Snowy Egret. Snowy Egrets never have yellow on there bills. Also note the green lores, Snowy Egrets have dark grey or black lores.

Sorry I missed @akandula 's post.

 It was too late to edit the original post.  This one is correct.

Loggerhead shrike

Loggerhead 1 (1 of 1)

 

@Seattle, do you have a Loggerhead or a Northern here?  The mask looks too narrow for LOSH to me, and it doesn't come up over the bill.

@Charlie Spencer, it's a Loggerhead. Northern Shrikes have very narrow masks (about the width of their eyes), more white markings around the eye, and often have barring on the breast.
