Hi Everyone! I haven't posted in awhile, but I need your help. I'm on a trip to south Florida and took a ride out into the Everglades today. I left my bird guide 800 miles north of here in my usual birding range of the piedmont and mountains of North Carolina. I am really bad at identifying birds this far south and close to water. I know what the first two are, but the third I am having trouble with. I figured I would upload all three for you awesome experts to confirm. Jim

Thanks Liam! I got the first two, but couldn't figure out the third. The black tips underneath the wings threw me off. From a distance they looked like Great Egrets but I've never seen those fly together.
