While in between taking the kids here and there this evening I simply had to 
drive by some ponds and lakes. It's mid-April, for goodness sake!  A flash of 
white in the sky turned out to be a single Cattle Egret. It flew down into a 
backyard of grass and clover, very near a house and some fields. The Cattle 
Egret walked/strutted all over the yard but spent much time foraging along 
the shallow drainage ditch there. Location was in Platte County in KC on N. 
Childress Ave. at Barry Road. This is in the Weatherby Lake vicinity. 

Good mid-April Birding!
