Kurt et. al.
My info shows mile 79 being in WASHCO within a few miles of the
intersection with I-70 @exit 82...

In any case the Yellow Book [Field List of the Birds of MD by Iliff,
Ringler, & Stasz, 3rd ed., May 1996] shows Great Egret as "likely to
be found in (AL) county every year," with "less than every year" shown
for bordering WA & GA counties...
