  • One of the Cattle Egrets is still at the Alexandre Dairy near Fort Dick, and was at it's usual hangout spot on the large manure piles at the north end of the big pond along Lower Lake Road. It has now assumed nice breeding colors, a delicately colored beauty to see. The Golden Eagles and Sandhill Crane were searched for in the same area also, but not seen. -Alan D. Barron
