Subject: [MDBirding] Possible Tricolored Heron, Berlin, MD
2:26pm: Heading west on US 50 today, I had an ebird-incidental-level sighting of what I was sure was a Tricolored Heron in the drainage ditch just east of the US 113 intersection. This seemed early based on my recollection and checking ebird confirmed it would be about 2 weeks before the early confident arrival window for this species. Because of this, I tried to hustle back from my business in Salisbury to grab a pic before submitting a checklist but was unable to do so before dusk. Being that the sighting location is only a few hundred yards from the super-birdy new Berlin Falls Park and also that I probably won't be able to follow up on this tomorrow, I should tell anybody birding in the vicinity through the weekend to keep cameras ready and eyes open to capture an early sighting and some easy ebird documentation.
