This Cattle Egret arrived in Bay Bulls on the Southern Shore about five or six days ago. I felt quite lucky that it was still there when I arrived at the farmer's field yesterday. It was showing signs of being quite at home among the sheep and the numerous on-lookers.
While on the Southern Shore, another birder and I decided to continue our trip into the other known bird-rich areas of the shore. Try as we did, we were unable to find anything else out of the ordinary. However, that never dampens the spirit of a birder because a lot of birding is really all about the hunt. Not to mention that we both added this Cattle Egret to our Life List yesterday. That is particularly special.
