The previously reported Cattle Egret reported by Jim Hayes this morning has been relocated tonight. It flew in from the south, headed north over the Oil City Rd Liberty Loop platform and landed in the field by the hunting platform. It then circled back over the platform, and landed (in NY), east of the platform. It was last seen flying east over the treeline. Other NY portion of refuge notables: Two American Bittern seen in flight (one landed east of platform and was in the same scope frame as the Cattle Egret), and Sora calling. Also seen: snipe, and both yellowlegs.
