Intermediate Egret with odd looking wings

“This intermediate egret (Mesophoyx intermedia) was observed during the early part of this month. It was at the same area around the pond for 3 consecutive weeks. I noticed that the wings look a bit odd and thought that it might have been injured. It was capable of flying across the pond but I thought it may have a problem flying long distances. It was no longer there the last time I went, either recovered or probably was not injured all along.”
