I just thought there might bee a late date record. I did not know that they occur "year round" somewhere in the state of Missouri. Thanks for the info, Josh.

Larry, Karen and others interested in winter Great Egret records in Missouri:
So, in regards to a "late date"... it is pretty tough to put a finger on that, since the records span the entire calendar year, at least the southern half of the state. If anything is unique about this latest sighting, is that it does appear to be the most northern wintering individual in Missouri. So, certainly worthy of including in a seasonal report so it is captured in the permanent record.
Hope this is helpful,
