Comments:
Peggy''s first time at Bombay Hook included the noted sighting of the Little Egret, which was facilitated by our meeting Edge Wade and her friend Claire from Missouri. Nice day, warm, some bugs, but overall quite decent. We did the autotour, and spent a considerable period of time at each of the pools, and at Finis. Little Egret not a lifer for me, as I had seen it before in Japan and Australia. But an indispensable ABA bird!
