Re: Reddish Egret at J St. 1/30/2019

There has been an adult Reddish Egret in the northern section of the Sweetwater Marsh NWR since October of 2018. I have seen it hunting in a pool next to the southbound I-5 on the National City side. It was there again 2 days ago and I’m willing to bet it’s the same bird.

This afternoon at 2:30 there was an adult Reddish Egret on the mudflat at J St in Chula Vista, along with Snowy Egrets and Great Blue Herons. A single Dunlin was with the peep near the riprap.
