Whats a white bird in western virginia?

Question by Labtec600: Whats a white bird in western virginia?
The bird was all white and had a redish/orangish breast and beak.

It was on a farm and was hanging around cows. It has been following/hanging around them all day.

I couldnt find anything on the web, does it sound familiar to anybody?
Yep, that was it.

Need more details.. what size was it.. like robin, crow, duck, goose, crane? what body shape, long legs/neck/beak, short legs/neck/beak?

Just as a quick guess based on what it was doing and the cows it was hanging around I would guess it was a Cattle Egret.. http://www.birds.cornell.edu/AllAboutBirds/BirdGuide/Cattle_Egret_dtl.html
