Subject: [Va-bird] Cattle Egrets and FOS Purple Martins - Gloucester County
Hi VA-Birders,

Yesterday we saw 2 Cattle Egrets foraging in a nearby field in the Hayes
area of lower Gloucester County. This species does not breed in this area,
as far as we know, so it was a treat to see them here.

Today the Egrets were gone, but we saw 6 Purple Martins flying above a
neighbor's yard that has multiple Purple Martin houses so they are back.

A great time of year to be out birding!
