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.
