"LOL I did say "almost". Without doubt they will avail themselves of the surrounding resources but they do show a strong preference for fields, pastures and such like habitat, more so than our other large waders. They bear the…"

"not to argue Ralph, but when I lived in Ontario, we used to see alot of Cattle Egrets hanging out down near Point Pelee, Rondeau Prov Park, and Long Point Prov Park.  They were in the fresh water marshes."

"Most animals appear larger than the tape measure or scales say. Also, the length quoted is bill tip to tail tip. The wader's long legs and upright stance can skew our perception of size. Regardless of the details, it's an elegant…"

"Yes, I would agree great egret. We moved to another view point and finally saw the black legs. However, it seemed larger than the Peterson describes. So beautiful. Thanks, L&K"

"Yellow bill could indicate either a Great Egret or a Cattle Egret. However, if it's as big as you think, that rules out the Cattle Egret. Also counting against the C. Egret is the location. They are almost always found away from water. I'm…"

"I find keeping the feeders going all year creates a dependence. Momma wood pecker patiently teaching baby how to use the sunflower feeder. The other problem is the hawks preying on the young although both feeders are sheltered. Kind of like…"

"I know they have to eat too but they make it impossible to sit on our deck or backyard, unfortunately.  We still get lots of small visitors to our trees and they enjoy the berries on the Weeping Cypress and sit in the silk lilac and hedges.…"

"We bring our feeders in once the buds begin to pop out but that is mainly because of our high pigeon population.  We just placed our hummingbird feeders out today.  "

Correction: i spotted hummers minutes after I posted!

Since the rose breasted grosbeaks came last week, our plan is to shut down the feeder soon till fall. I'm curious to find what others do.Approx 2 weeks ago I spotted an American bittern in a neighbour's yard. It's been 2 years since I have been lucky enough to spot one. This one however was across the road - not near the river. It was quite determined to stand still as a post until I left the scene. I have yet to see a pair.See More
