Not sure what kind of bird this is. Feedback always appreciated.

I'm pretty sure those are neither egrets or Herons. But, I can't really make out the neck area. If they are of that family, Egrets are white, so the 'could' be egrets. Herons tend to have a more grey coloring.
Nice pic. The White of the birds really pops nicely. I like the depth of field as well.

The postition it is in, with the retracted neck, makes it look like a night-heron. But it is in fact a 'snowy egret' (Egretta thula):

Ahh thank you very much for the ID. I need to get myself a birdwatching book, or find a decent website
