What kind of Heron?

white morph?

Does anybody know what Heron or Egret this is? The picture was taken in Paramaribo, Suriname at the riverside. I cant seem to find a White Egret or Heron with yellowish patch at the start of the bill, having also yellowish feet. Is it an interbreed? Birds of Venezuela by Hilty doesnt match it nor does Birds of Surinam by Haverschmidt. Any ideas?
