American Egret in San Diego County

Noticing some reports regarding the Egret (Herodias egretta) still surviving I might say that I saw on October 13, 1912, at least twelve at one time, and on October 15 there were nine. Again on November 28, 1912, I saw five, and on December 25 I saw over twenty all in a bunch.

All these birds were on the south end of San Diego Bay near the salt works. On previous years I never saw more than four at any one time on the Bay in that district; and but a single individual was to be seen once in a while at the north end of the Bay or on Mission Bay.
