This morning I went out to check on the egrets northeast & northwest of Estevan. The nights are quite cold now, the days getting shorter, and I am really curious to know about when all these Cattle Egrets will suddenly decide it is time to move on.
There are approx. 150 birds in this group - a few stragglers on either side, plus 8 across the road.
Oh, and THIS is also going on across the road.
It's the Bakken Field - there are no quiet, secluded places around here anymore.
