> 29X is a famous egret....his name among banders and spotters is "Frank". 
> He/she has its own web page even. We banded it in 2012 at Nottawasaga Island, 
> near Collingwood, Ontario, about 1.5 hrs by car NNW of Toronto, on the 
> southern shore of Georgian Bay. That winter he was observed repeatedly on the 
> waterfront property of David Sobotta in coastal North Carolina. He was 
> re-observed each year, 2014-2017, during the breeding season at Nottawasaga 
> and he has returned to David's place each winter....for 6 years!! It is 
> fantastic that you saw him yesterday at the Montezuma Nat. Wldf. Refuge near 
> Seneca Falls, NY. His fan club will be anxious to hear this. He is
