The Great White Heron is a color morph or variation of the Great Blue Heron that was once thought to be a completely different specie. Similar in appearance to the White Egret, Great White Herons are most easily distinguished as having light colored legs whereas the Great Egret's legs are black.
The majestic great white heron is unique to south Florida and the Florida Keys, I'm planning a trip to Sort Lauderdale soon. Hopefully I'll get some pictures then
