Reddish Egret at Guadalupe Dunes-Santa Maria River

John Deacon


I will post on E Bird later.  At 1045 hrs today (8/17), I saw and photographed a Reddish Egret in the Santa Maria River about 0.5 miles east of the ocean.  It was in one of the riparian areas that are easily observed from the road.  There were also 4 Great Egrets in that area.  For what it's worth, I tied pink marking tape on the fence alongside the road from where I photographed the REEG.
