It seems an Anhinga nest was below the spot this Egret wanted.  Anhinga are not afraid of Egrets, and of course the Egret is aggressive by nature.

If you look closely you can see the sharp bill of the Anhinga sticking out of the underbrush.

The Great Egret was smart and backed off. Anhinga use their sharp bill as a spear to hunt… and protect their nests.
