I am once again asking Ontbirders to be on the lookout for  wing-tagged
Great Egrets this summer-autumn. Great Egrets were tagged earlier  this
month at their nesting colony on Georgian Bay, Lake Huron, near
Collingwood (100 km NW of Toronto). This year flightless young birds
were marked with light BLUE tags, one on each wing. The tags are marked
with two  numbers and a letter, e.g. 28T. 

If you see such a tagged bird, please send me the details as  to date,
time and location of your sighting, colour of the tag and the
numerical-letter characters.  In past years, orange and green tags have
also been used, so be watchful for  these colours as well. Some of the
orange tags have faded to white...with black characters. 

Many thanks,

Cheers,
