[Tweeters] Cattle Egret today at the Fill

The bird seems to be sticking close to its regular schedule. It was feeding
in the northwest corner of the soccer field with an entourage of 3 birders
when I arrived at 1.15, and was still there when I left at 2pm. Definitely
not a shy bird - while we were skulking carefully by the bushes, a man with
a camera lens the size of most trees walked straight across the field and
set up 15 feet from the egret. It eyed him for a few seconds, then carried
right on feeding.

I enjoyed getting a nice view of the Cattle Egret today. I saw it shortly
before 11 am on one of the playfields north of the soccer field. It is very
white and very noticible on the green.

A surprise today was a very late Brown-headed Cowbird in a large group of
Starlings in the nearby parking lot.
