The Egret in Southern California
The Egret in Southern California.
While crossing the salt marsh north of Alamitos Bay, Los Angeles County, California, 9:30 a. m., February 26, 1911, en route to Newport Beach, I saw two Egrets (Herodias egretta) standing in a tide pool about seventy-five yards from the Pacific Electric R. R. tracks. The passing of the car did not seem to disturb them. When returning, about 1:30 p. m., I did not see the birds.
