Little Egret in PA?
Check out photos of this interesting egret, found yesterday by Chuck Chalfont. Without the characteristic head plumes, this is often a tough ID, since Snowy Egrets, Little Egrets, and even white morph Western Reef Herons can be pretty variable (some people would even say they belong to the same species). Since I saw a Little Egret last month at Bombay Hook, I'll probably skip chasing this guy. Of course, if I didn't already have Little Egret and Western Reef Heron on my ABA list, I might reconsider! At any rate, an interesting bird, and one that reminds us to look carefully at every bird we see.
