New Bird Photographed – Great Egret

Great Egret

First day out after all the rain and storms we’ve had, and I spotted another new bird!  It was at the Norrie Point Environmental Center and it was a great egret!  It also turned out to be the first sighting of the day.

The egret stuck around for a half an hour before being chased off by a great blue heron.  It wouldn’t be the last one I saw this day either.  I saw two at Norrie Point and another four on the other side of the river from the Mills Mansion historic site.

This now puts me at 125 birds photographed in Dutchess County alone!
