Snowy Egret

A walk out onto the flats from the Clarke Ave parking area here in Cohoes ( Lower Mohawk chapter in birdfinding guide) turned up a Snowy Egret with a bright yellow cere and boots. First I've seen here in 4 years and first ever in spring. It flew up and over the spillway but may very well return. Other birds included:

Double-crested Cormorant
Canada Goose
Wood Duck
American Black Duck
Mallard
Blue-winged Teal
Common Merganser
Killdeer
Greater Yellowlegs
Ring-billed, Herring and Great Black-backed Gull
Tree and Northern Rough-winged Swallow
