Last Monday night I noticed a single cattle Egret roosting in a tree quite close to our house. I thought I might be sick or weak, but it had gone by morning. Perhaps there were others also roosting nearby in the dark.
Last night I saw a flock of 20-40 cattle Egrets cruising about in circles above our block. (It was great to watch them wheeling around so low.) They finally settled in a tree on our block down by the dam.
Is it likely they will regularly roost there? Will they nest there?
