Where are they?

For several years Cattle Egrets were quite common in New Jersey. They have declined dramatically in the past several years.
This year there has been one seen up in Salem County. Down here in Cape May there are about 5 or 6 of them. They appear in a field for an hour or so and then are gone. There is no pattern to the time of day but there are only a couple of fields they favor.

We will have to be very, very lucky to see on Saturday. We could miss Cattle Egret this year.
