Week 6.

Great Egrets are uncommon in this area, but this one was present for several months this fall. American Great Egrets are always shown in guide books with black legs, however this one has yellow legs. The black on the legs is mud and the legs are actually all yellow. This led to considerable discussion on bird websites about the identification of the bird which you can find by Googling Nisqually Egret. Other pictures are here
