Apr 29, 2014: Great Egrets

8 Great Egrets in a tree on the bluff, 4/29/14, 8:30am (Kevin Kane)

This note came from AHHP Friend Zora Zimmerman:

At just about 7:00 p.m. today (4/28/14), Tom and I watched --- from the west parking lot at Ada Hayden --- 8 great egrets landing on the sandbar on the north shoreline of the western end of the south lake below the hill and west of the creek near the shelter. They were joined by a small flock of white pelicans (9 to 12 individuals) who landed next to them. I am guessing they will spend the night there and stay until the winds and rains change. It was drizzling when we were there. Seeing these glorious white birds together was a real pleasure.

You probably have spotted them already, but I wanted to record our own sighting.
