For what it's worth, I checked out the Washburn egrets today and saw one bird that looked noticeably smaller and shorter-billed than the surrounding Great Egrets. Alas, the birds were too far away to get any decent looks at the gape, let alone obtain usable photos. The egrets flew farther back into the marsh before a couple carloads of other birders arrived.
Sally's new photos are certainly intriguing. I hope other people make it out there and can get additional shots - we may yet be able to pin an ID on this bird, after all!
Happy Christmas birding
