Cattle Egret at Villa Creek


Maggie Smith
 

Just as I was leaving Villa Creek this morning, Alice Cahill and I spotted a Cattle Egret in full breeding plumage roosting near the top of the willows north of the parking area.

It flew across Hwy 1 and was seen by Tom Edell.  When it flew next it was going toward the ocean.
