Snowy Egret...in Waterloo!
So earlier today at work I got a text from Ken Burrell saying that a snowy egret had been reported on the weekend at the Conestogo River just up the street from my office! So, needless to say, myself and a coworker jumped in the car and went to the bridge where it was last seen. Unfortunately it started to pour rain as soon as we got there so we just looked for a minute and didn't find it. A little later in the afternoon Ken actually refound this bird and alerted us at the office. We all piled in the car, waded across the river and eventually located the bird. Unfortunately it flushed further down the river before we could get really good shots. I did manage one washed out shot as it was flying away.
