snowy egret? 

We have them but egrets are much larger.  These stand maybe 12-18 inches.   The bird he notes are fairly common in inshore regions of SoCal but I don’t know what they are called.

That's why I hired @Dottles.

I only specialize in receiving the bird.  I cannot help you with the types.

Cali has a lot of coastline and a lot of great birds.

Yep - sort of like white but smaller herons.  Not sure what they are - herons? egrets?

It's an egret for sure.  The black beak means it's probably a snowy egret.  Could be a Simulation Egret though.

Could be!  On the way to mate up north? Or done for the season?

Snowy egrets are much smaller than great egrets.  18-22 inches.

It looks like photos of snowy egrets right down to the yellowish mark between the bill and the eye which isn't easy to see in the orig. picture, but I lightened and saturated it with Paintshop Pro: and also note the hairlike feather extensions.  But I'm not sure if the neck's right.

Yeah - even the little tufts of feathers are there in the stock photo you post.

Snowy Egret is surely the right answer!
