Depends where the OP is.  If he's in the Old World it's a little egret - very similar but different species.

Ahh!  Thanks for that info David.  Looking again, the area around the eyes are not the yellow of the Snowy, unless that is an indication of a juvenile.  Maybe the OP will chime in again with what part of the world the photo was taken.  Its good to learn new stuff, and I have a lot to learn about birds.  Stay Safe!

Then little egret.  It's amazing how quickly  little egrets have spread north through the uk over the past few years.  Not found their way to my garden yet  but if it's sparrows you're after I can help

I'm in North Yorkshire and I haven't seen one yet. I'm waiting for the parakeets too.

Monk parakeets here but rare.  Very seldom spotted.  Chicago area.

David, well done on the ID.  Again, thank you for the correction to my earlier attempt.  Stay Safe!

Have amazing birds in our garden & surrounding paddocks. We are quite rural which is nice. Recent newcomers to the garden are a family of long tailed tits which we haven't had before:-)
