Great Egret, Snowy Egret, Cattle Egret,

Wh. Faced Ibis

Compare this shot with another gathering of egrets and pelicans. Generally these species feed by themselves but at other times they follow each other when one species has spotted food.
In the far background on the right there are faint images of Sandhill Cranes.
