Re: Two Reddish Egrets at Robb Field Saturday morning

Update on Sunday afternoon,

We birded at Robb Field and Old Sea World Drive about 3 pm on Sunday. The juvie Reddish Egret was just upriver from the bridge at the west end of Old Sea World. No sign of the adult, but also of interest were two Yellow-crowned
Night Herons farther upriver, and at the east end of the road at Friars, we saw a White-tailed Kite. It still had its buffy chest and cap, which Sibley says disappears at about five weeks. At Robb Field, almost all the waders are gone. No Willets, Marbled
Godwits or peeps. But there were 8 or 9 Long-billed Curlews and a flock of a dozen or so Black Skimmers on the bare sand bank. By the way, we've never seen the river so low. It looked very different from its normal level.

Good birding,

Vic Warren and Laurel Scott
