You thanked a number of people in your message below. The birding community
owes you a huge thank you for all your excellent reports on the presence of
the Little Egret in the Ottawa area. How many mornings did you get up at
0400h in order to get to the Haydon Park by 0500h to get the word out.
Many thanks my friend for all the effort you have made so that many birders
were able to get to see this new provincial rarity.
Take care and be well.

Unfortunately no reports today but that doesn’t mean it isn’t still in the
Ottawa region. A few of us checked other areas today after leaving Andrew
Haydon Park and no joy. It appears that the Little Egret may have changed
its routine including where it’s roosting at night. I haven’t received any
sightings today. After a month of playing hide and seek with birders and
photographers it’s hard to say if it has left the area. If anyone observes
the Little Egret please post to Ontbirds ASAP.
I’d like to thank all those who assisted in tracking the first Ontario
record of the Little Egret, especially Ben Di Labio, Michael Tate, Arron
Hywarren, Michelle and Paul Martin and all other birders and photographers
too. Tomorrow is another day. Its been an amazing experience.
