> Hi everyone,
>      Thanks to the post about the SCISSORED-TAILED FLYCATCHER in

> Illinois. The gentleman who owns the property is very friendly and

> for only a few minutes and saw a REDDISH EGRET in a tiny pond on the
> west side of Fred Huth Rd. at the corner of Lenzburg East Rd. and
> Fred Huth Rd.  The bird was "dancing" over it's prey while my husband
> and I observed it. (I notice in Delorme pg.82 it says the East-West
> Rd. is 500N, so keep driving if the pond should be little further

>      Other highlights of our trip and 6 life birds:
> 2 BARN OWLS in Sesser- Jefferson County
> 3 MISSISSIPPI KITES- Clear Creek Levee- Union County
>   CHUCK-WILL'S WIDOW, WHIP-POOR-WILL- Fern Clyffe S.P.- Johnson County
