I visited the pond just east of the end of Lower River Road in Clark County
and was surprised to see an adult and an immature SNOWY EGRET with one
Great Egret. I'm assuming these were the same two birds seen during the
week of September 8. The area is accessed from either 4th Plain or Mill
Plain exits westward off of I-5. Continue past Vancouver Lake and go to
the end of the road (after veering left just after Vancouver Lake is seen
on the right). There's a trail to the right that leads to a pond on the
left where the egrets were actively feeding. First time I've ever had
Snowy Egrets outnumbering Great Egrets!

Vancouver Lake had a continuing Red-necked Grebe, a Common Loon and a
Bonaparte's Gull among other more expected species. Yesterday evening,
there was also an Eared Grebe and both goldeneyes on the lake.

Keep your eyes and ears....on the prize.....
