A Great Egret was seen frequently over a three week period, starting April 27, 2015. This always occurred when I was working, making photography difficult. The bird had a yellow beak and dark legs. It would be there each morning very early (7 AM) and leave when nearby residents began walking dogs (8:30 to 9:00 AM). Twice, it was seen in another wetland not far from the early morning site.
