Long legged Waders of Chautauqua County - Part III

August 30, 2009
Observer Today

In concluding this three part article on the long-legged waders of Chautauqua County, I want to thank those of you for contributing data and photographs of local plant and animal species for these articles. While discussing the long legged wader birds of our county, records maintained by me from the old Chautauqua County Birding Hotline and from independent calls from many of you indicate that there are 11 species in this group of large wading birds that have been sighted here in our county over the years and have been reported to the former county birding hotline along with prior records maintained by the late Dr. Willard Stanley, my article predecessor Allen Benton and yours truly. This week's article will conclude the report of the long legged waders by highlighting three members of this group reported over the years in our county. These three birds are the Least Bittern, Snowy Egret, and the Cattle Egret.
