Yesterday I posted a message about a Great Egret at Tschache pool that has a yellow tag 29x. Here is the response from Chip Weseloh about “Frank”. His email is attached and he (or I)would appreciate any information on future sightings.

> 29X is a famous egret....his name among banders and spotters is "Frank". He/she has its own web page even. We banded it in 2012 at Nottawasaga Island, near Collingwood, Ontario, about 1.5 hrs by car NNW of Toronto, on the southern shore of Georgian Bay. That winter he was observed repeatedly on the waterfront property of David Sobotta in coastal North Carolina. He was re-observed each year, 2014-2017, during the breeding season at Nottawasaga and he has returned to David's place each winter....for 6 years!! It is fantastic that you saw him yesterday at the Montezuma Nat. Wldf. Refuge near Seneca Falls, NY. His fan club will be anxious to hear this. He is undoubtedly on his way back to his breeding colony. Is there any chance that you could go back after the ice storm to see if he is still there?

> Yesterday afternoon 4/13 we had a yellow wing tagged Great Egret #29x with 4 others. I believe all 5 came in yesterday with only scattered singles reported before this. Thanks, Mike and Joann Tetlow 585-748-5838
