Snowy egret flying
I cannot get this to be a different species even with the black feet and the aberrant colors of neck and tail. It somehow looks too regular and in the wrong place to be staining?

Thank you both. Other feedback I have received indicates mud on the feet and likely also staining as responsible for the rest of the non-white colors.
