Solitary Fishing

I hung out with a lone Snowy Egret at sunset tonight.  I usually see egrets working in groups but I see this one alone at the same spot nearly every night.  It was casually fishing and doing a little mugging for the camera , even getting close enough to me that I could fill the frame with its head.  The bottom photograph shows flaking on the upper part of the bill.  Is there such a thing as chapped bills?
