They were not skittish and I practically pulled up right beside them. I was not able to get the whole bird in the frame!
They then moved towards a small tree beside the drainage ditch.
In recent years, Cattle Egrets have become more regular. These were perhaps the two that were photographed at Mitchell's Bay June 23 (they do have the same plumage). But then, who knows!
While in the area I decided to walk at St. Clair NWA rather than sit around all evening. There was not much to see there, but it was a nice evening for a walk.
Along Maple Line there were also 3 Sandhill Cranes.
The Sandhills west of Wallaceburg seem to be increasing, as I saw about 30 early this morning.
