We’ll never know if it is the same individual roaming parts of Morris County this month but it seems more than likely. After not having a Cattle Egret (Bubulcus ibis) reported in Morris County since 2012, there are three records this month:
- May 5 on Chapin Rd., Pine Brook.
- May 6 in Troy Meadows.
- May 17 near the water treatment plant on Greenbank Drive near Boonton Reservoir.
The distance between these locations is three to six miles.
