I was fortunate enough to see and photograph the Cattle Egret today along Ingham Hill Rd, Old Saybrook.Congratulations to Dan Cimbaro for finding and reporting it. I just want to add that it is quite likely the same adult bird in breeding plumage that had been present May 22-23 in Old Lyme, associating with some horses in a private meadow. The two sites are only 3.44 miles apart, as the egret flies.
