On Monday, we went to the birding centre on the island later in the afternoon.
There was something not quite right about this great egret. On closer inspection we, and another birder who came along, determined that it was indeed a reddish egret in white morph phase. The posture and black-tipped, pink beak gave it away.
When we first arrived, we quickly spotted a black and white warbler, a white-eyed vireo and several northern parulas - a life bird for me. These guys flit around so much it was hard to get a good shot in the partial shade with my point and shoot camera but you get the idea.
A fellow birder from Colorado who pulled up when we were there spotted a water thrush at the water feature on the south side of the street. It was too muddy for me to venture across to it so I didn't get a chance to see it. We'll stop by there today to have another look on our way by.
