Great Egret

Tried to count them several times, but they were moving around too much to get an exact count. I feel like this is a pretty good estimate though - about 45 individuals of this species and 45 Snowies.

Seen well, singing at 27.9851, -81.8741. I've never heard of this species breeding at Circle B, but it looks like this male might be trying to.

Indigo Bunting

Same general location as the Blue Grosbeak (27.9851, -81.8741), about 30 yards farther south. Heard only. Sang several times - a random assortment of mostly paired phrases. I got one recording before it stopped, and then I accidentally deleted it. I'm very familiar with this song from the time I spend in Tennessee (where Indigo Bunting is one of the most commonly heard songs throughout the summer).
