Western Reef Heron or Southern Little Egret

There seems to be some debate as to whether the rare visitor to the [tag]Maine[/tag] and [tag]New Hampshire[/tag] coasts this week is a Western Reef Heron or a dark morph Southern Little Egret.

A very interesting article can be read at Lillian and Don Stokes site concerning the debate as to what this [tag]bird[/tag] may be.

It will be interesting to see what comes of this.
