Cattle and Snowy Egrets

There’s an stampede of egrets at the south end of Lake Meredith, mostly Cattle Egrets, but there are a couple of Snowy Egrets as well. Most of them are sitting nests right now. They are in a clump of salt cedar that is only accessable by kayak or canoe and it is difficult to get an accurate count because of the denseness of the thicket, but I think that here are at least 60 egrets there.
