Driving on Byp. US-17 west of Elizabeth City yesterday I noticed a lot of birds working a field behind a tractor adjacent to the pond just north of the Walmart off the Halstead exit. I turned around and checked out the group and noted 3 Cattle Egrets mixed in with the Ring-billed Gulls, along with a few Laughing, Herring, and Bonaparte's Gulls. Nearby a group of 25 yellowlegs was huddled near the pond edge. In the water was 60 Coots and 1 Ring-necked Duck.
