It's a juvenile Little Blue Heron.
Thanks
but don't think so
I checked and Little Blues aren't in these parts normally (SoCal/Los Angeles area) and I believe 1st year Juvis are all White.

First year juvies are all white until they become first srpring juvies and start the transition to their adult colors. Here's a local from a couple years ago.

Nice Shot! Kind of reminds me of how Juvenile Bald Eagles look as they are going through the yearly transitions, varying amounts of white/brown/black as they mature.
