I'm starting with a Cattle Egret because it is the smallest of the BWWBs at a length of 20 inches. This adult Cattle Egret is in nonbreeding plumage. It has a short yellow bill, light yellow eyes with pale yellow lores, short dark legs and a stocky neck.

There is one other BWWB that I do not have images of and that is the white morph of the Great Blue Heron that is found mainly in southern Florida to the Florida Keys.
So while this post is mainly about Big White Wading Birds I have also covered birds whose names include red and blue.
