Previous Two Birds Looking Aside
22 of 42 from Mekong Delta

Egretta garzetta (Little Egret)

This colony is cool because the birds are stand on top of bamboo trees, not on a remote rock like many Canadian colonies.

The lack of plumes (long feathers) and the season says this is the non-breeding plumage. The dark feet say juvenile to me.
