Cattle Egret Sightings

Cattle egrets have had an interesting and controversial history locally, particularly in relation to their well-documented colonistation of the Toowoomba Bird Habitat - along with the White Ibis, and the public amenity issues and population control measures that arose. Please post any further anecdotes and observations you may have here ...

Cattle Egret Sightings

Post by NicciT » Mon Feb 06, 2006 10:12 pm

Cattle Egrets fly in a north-westerly direction on a path that takes them between St Andrews Hospital and Baillie Henderson Hospital. A few birds are further east following Gowrie Creek. Birds are coming and going for most of the day with some still flying north-west very late in the day.

I have extracted Cattle Egret records for this area from my own data if they would be of any use. Cattle Egrets first appeared in my data for north-west Toowoomba in late 1999.
