Bird of the year?

Linda Scribner found what is a first county record of a Snowy Egret in the Manistee State Game area (view from US-31 in Manistee). It was found Friday evening and watched for about 30 minutes until it disappeared around the point.  Several of Manistee Audubon's members were able to see it in during its brief stay.
What a great find!
