Cattle Egrets at Walnut Canyon Lakes
Out for a quick walk around the ponds this morning when, at some distance, I saw a toddler at the south end chase two Egrets off the grass; the Egrets flew right toward me and I had a very nice look at them as they passed by - Cattle Egrets. (Just 3 weeks ago, I had my County lifer Cattle Egret at Mormon Lake). Unfortunately, I didn't see them again when I completed the loop so I assume they departed North for parts unknown.
Also had 3 White-faced Ibis hanging out on the sidewalk with the usual crowd of ducks - I passed within a few feet of them and they didn't budge.
