Stakeout of the "new" Great Egret roost 500 yards south of Van Dyne Spoor Rd, MNWR, started at 7:30pm with 20 birds. Another ~20 flew in between 8:00-8:15 (these presumably from Knox-Marsellus). At 8:28pm Jim Tarolli spotted the juv. Little Blue flying in. It was the last bird of the day and marginally visible once landed. One really needs to see it fly in and hopefully perch atop the brush (or at least where it lands). It was coming from the south or southwest which could mean anywhere in the main MNWR complex.
