One morning last week Tod Lanier and I (independently) counted 11-Great Egret at Lake Loretta and remarked that we had not witnessed a number such as this in the past. My "past" in the locale is far more limited than Tod's but the number seemed noteworthy to him.
Today during my lunch break I counted 17-Great Egret. Most of them are in two trees. One tree is on the bank of the lake and the other tree is on the island where the Green Heron perennial rookery is located.
Double-crested Cormorant, Ring-billed Gull, Pied-billed Grebe, American Coot in "common" numbers.
4-Ruddy Duck still hangin' out.
