This is an addendum to my email to Ontbirds on Thursday, Sept. 5th.  I'm 
sure by now some have had a close look at the Cattle Egret and have formed 
some opinion as to its age.  I mention this in regards to a question posed 
by Jacques Bouvier in his original email to Ontbirds regarding the age of 
the bird.  I managed to take some photos of the Cattle Egret so these may be 
of some assistance.
