Lake Merritt Heron

The bird I saw at the south side of Lake Merritt today might well be  a juvenile Snowy Egret according to John Sterling.  The bird has a bicolored bill, basal half gray,  but the outer primaries lack the gray one would expect from a Little Blue. He based this on the cell phone photos I took (I'd be happy to share those with anyone requesting).
