Rare Cattle Egret In Eastham On Cape Cod


Phil and I were driving home last week when I saw this Egret-like bird in one of the little ponds along the side of the road. It has rained so much lately that there are little ponds all over the place, where there were never any little ponds.

I got out of the car and clicked away, thinking it was a Great Egret. It wasn’t until I got home and looked on my computer that I saw it was a Cattle Egret. They are not very common around here so it was a big treat to see one. I had never seen one before!

Love that orangish plumage on his breast, head and tail!
