Sure enough, when I got up, late, this morning and looked at my email, there was a report of a Cattle Egret in those fields from yesterday. I wasn't really planning on doing any birding today after our marathon of yesterday, but this funny egret was too good to pass up and the fields are only about 20 minutes away. When I saw another report that it was still there, I jumped in the car. The bird was right there, not difficult to see, though a tad distant for any really good photos. It is in breeding plumage, with lots of rusty orange on it head and back. Cattle Egrets make their living following cattle (or farm machinery) eating the bugs that are kicked up. The only problem for this bird is that those bulls and cows don't move around a lot. Maybe that's why Cattle Egrets haven't gravitated to there before.
