A Great Egret

    Yesterday I blogged about seeing grizzly bears and today I a have another rare sight--a Great Egret.  At Tuesday night’s jam session, Elsie Stanley, an avid birder, mentioned that there had been a Great Egret spotted down at Horseshoe Lake.
    I had to go into McBride yesterday afternoon, so decided to make a short detour over to Horseshoe Lake to see if I could see it.  There it was sitting on a raft and was pretty easy to identify. It’s an unlikely surprise to see an Egret in the Interior of BC, the first time I ever saw one was down in Mexico.  The map in my bird book shows them in warmer climes like California and Oregon.
