Cattle Egret at Carp Salt Marsh

John Callender
 

I saw a Cattle Egret in the Carpinteria Salt Marsh this afternoon. It was just inside the restricted access portion of the marsh at Estero Way, in the drainage channel that runs west from the Estero Way gate, parallel to the train tracks. I saw it for a few minutes, then was distracted by a human interaction and when I looked back the bird was gone. I looked for another half hour or so but couldn’t refind it.
