Reddish Egret (Egretta rufescens) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1103)
Canada (Ontario) Oliphant - This is the first confirmed record of Reddish Egret in Canada. Not only that but it gets the 'ugly bird' award. This juvenile appeared on the Bruce Peninsula and has been present for weeks. It may well remain for weeks to come because it likes the neighbourhood on Lake Huron; shallow shore waters with good feeding opportunities. It is standing on a boat.

This is perhaps the least attractive bird I've shot in a while but its rarity surpasses its appearance.

Yes it was great to see. The bird is still present and could remain through the early fall.
