Cattle Egret


Joan L Cipriani <jlcip@...>
 

Stopped by Collins Lake about 7 am this morning (4/6) to check out the
ducks and lo and behold I saw 4 white birds in a tree on the island
point in the middle of the lake. When I put my bins on them I was
surprised to find 4 Cattle Egret in breeding plumage. Buff on the crown
and belly with a pinkish orange bill. They were great! This was on the
beach side. I then went over to the Quinlan Park side. The sun from
this angle dulled the color.
