After striking out on the West End stilts, Miriam and I went to Cow Meadow to
try our luck. In my haste to locate the Cattle Egret, I largely passed over two
ibis sitting among the night-herons, carefully the checking the face of the
closest one and glancing at the other preening bird. They took off shortly
after we arrived and circled the park. We did find the egret, and then when I
looked at Miriam's photos I discovered that I had been a careless birder.
Hopefully the bird can be refound. Brent is still on site and looking around.
