Waterloo has had a couple of good rarities show up in the past few weeks. First the Snowy Egret, followed by a Buff-breasted Sandpiper found by Ken Burrell today on the Sod Farms just outside of the town. This represents the first record for this species...ever! I zipped up there after work today and found it after a few minutes of searching. A beautiful bird, and my 234th bird species for the year! Unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me today or I could have got some shots. I will try again tomorrow to get some pictures of it. Stay tuned!
