Snowy Egret Rock

Posted on Aug 26, 2015

I guess even the Snowy Egrets (Egretta thula) might want to enjoy some time on the shore on a lovely summer day. The waters are very warm now, and temperatures are higher than average in some locations. For places like Lake Erie this will mean it may stay open later into this winter season, giving it a good chance of producing more lake effect snow if the conditions are right.
