Saw this wing-tagged (and banded) Great Egret in Harrier Meadow this afternoon, reported it, and got an immediate response from Susan Elbin, Director of Conservation and Science for New York City Audubon.
“That’s one of our kids – D12. … Banded the 7 August 2013 on Elder’s Marsh in Jamaica Bay.”
Susan reports that another of the 13 Great Egrets that were wing-tagged that day in Jamaica Bay was seen in Saratoga, N.Y., on August 19.
Note: The Meadowlands also hosted a tagged Great Egret from Jamaica Bay last summer. Link is here.
