Susan Elbin of NYC Audubon passed along this shot of the tagged Great Egret seen in Morris County earlier this week, photographed by Jonathan Klizas. (Another tagged egret was seen in Lyndhurst this week, by Chris Takacs).
The Morris County bird hailed from Jamaica Bay. The Lyndhurst bird possibly hailed from Hoffman's Island near Staten Island.
Susan Elbin asks birders to be on the lookout for tagged egrets — please report any sightings to selbin (at) nycaudubon.org.
Thanks, Jonathan and Susan!
