Where did you hear that? That would be very surprising! 
Sacra has never been part of the garzetta complex. 

Also the eastern form of Western Reef Egret schistacea although mostly treated 
as a subspecies of garzetta might not be part of the garzetta complex but 
clearly different from Eastern Reef Egret sacra.
The confusing thing is that the western form of Western Reef Egret gularis is 
likely conspecific with garzetta!

I also heard that they're lumping to two Reef-Egrets...
