Cattle Egret in Tabusintac reported by Aldo Dorio

Some of us travelled today to Covedell Rd., Tabusintac, following Aldo Dorio’s tip below. We were able to easily spot Cattle Egret amongst 8 or so cows in a field just after turning off hwy 11. It was feeding on the ground. Brilliantly white and not in breeding plumage. This apparently is not the first sighting of this species in the county as eBird has a report from 1979 entered as a historical record by Mitch Doucet. There were apparently 5 in the Newcastle area (Birds of NB, an annotated list 2004 was Mitch’s source). There are currently 3 other’s reported presently in NB I gather.

Further down the road we were fortunate to also see an American Coot, (waterfowl) not a stranger to these parts necessarily, but a species not often seen.
