Sal, you've got some very nice shots here. I like the cattle egret and green heron shots a lot, but would crop the birds off center a bit more if possible. Your mystery bird is a bittern - and appears to be a least bittern at that, which is a very hard bird to spot, let alone photograph. The tri-color is beautiful and I'm quite struck by its eye color. A bit higher f-stop might have given the depth of field to keep the beak and crest in focus. Nice day in the field, for sure.

The little green heron shot is a classic for that type of bird. 'Good to see you got a good place to shoot in PB Co. (I used to live in PB Gardens) Nice work on the Bittern too btw.
