Great Egret - White heron on the Shellpot Creek

The wildlife sightings continue on the Shellpot Creek. This morning I saw what I suspect is a Great Egret (or White Heron) feeding in the creek behind the house. I even saw it eating a fish, though I could not get a picture of that. These photos are courtesy of my crappy Treo camera, some with and some without the binoculars. (My good camera is broken!)

It had a yellow bill, and dark legs.

It also had a long neck.

It tucked its neck into an S shape when it flew away up the creek. All of these are characteristics of a White Heron.
