Tall bird, long legs and neck, grey, white, and black

Saw this on the shore while fishing the river in Iuka, MS during the first week of August 2011. Extreme novice here on identification of birds, I'd like to know what it was. Any ideas?

I saw a similar Large Bird September 15th long legs long neck in a small pond while walking in the hills near Mountain View Alberta Canada.

I spend a lot of time in the wilderness and foot hills of Southern British Columbia and Alberta Canada'
When I saw this beautiful bird, I was shocked as never seen anything like it in this part of the world before.
Something you would expect to see in the waterlands of Florida or the South Pacific ??

We seen a bird like this one just this morning land in our back yard. We are in Okc. Oklahoma. It was such a shock to see it land and just stand there for like 5 minutes just looking and then it flew off. What a sight it was..
