Great egret in Atascadero CA
- Earlier this week (I believe Wednesday), I backed out of my driveway and headed down the street to
go to work. I hadn't gone far when I saw a great egret (Casmerodius albus) flying just above the
trees. Not unusual to see one of these cool birds close to water (Salinas River, Atascadero Lake,
etc.), but I don't see one every day commuting over a residential neighborhood over a mile from the
nearest water source.
