Went up to the Thurman Dix Reservoir in East Barre and Very much to my surprise I spotted a Great Egret. I've been chasing birds up there for 12 years and this is the first time I've seen one. I didn't see any others. The water levels have dropped significantly at the reservoir. It was feeding in the reeds near newly exposed areas and from what I could tell it was catching minnows.
They can be seen on Flickr:
