The great egrets are making a great show this week, along with a number of shorebirds in the Main Pool! An American Bittern was spotted toward the end of the Wildlife Drive yesterday, too.

Don't forget to sign up for THIS SUNDAY'S Guided Shorebird Walk. Our leader is Dave Nutter from the Cayuga Bird Club (and I bet he will bring some fabulous cohorts to help spot, identify, and share spotting scopes). We also added one more date to our series, next Sunday, August 9. Happy Birding!
