Western Reef-Heron

Western Reef-Heron, photographed in NH this summer

There is much speculation as to where the famous Western Reef-Heron, that delighted birders in Maine and New Hampshire this summer, has gone. James Smith recently was on a Birdfinders bird watching tour to The Gambia, in West Africa and saw and photographed lots of Western Reef-Herons who closely resembled the Maine/New Hampshire bird. Wish he could have interviewed those birds and asked if one of them was our Maine/New Hampshire bird and how it enjoyed its stay in the U.S.
