Cattle Egret

May 5: Cattle Egret

A very good bird for Montana. Thanks to a curious homeowner, Jake Bramante and Dan Casey this bird made it into eBird. Reported later in the day on May 3, I saw the eBird rare bird alert email that evening. I knew that I had to jump to it first thing in the morning. I headed to Lakeside in Flathead county without delay and took two passes through the quiet neighborhood where it was reported and succeeded in seeing it on the second pass. I spent just two minutes for a few photos and moved on, leaving the neighborhood and then submitting my checklist to eBird. Stoked to have seen this bird in Montana!
