Morgan Moments – Great White Egret in Raritan Bay Waterfront Park
The day after Hurricane Irene blasted through Morgan in August 2011 was one of the most beautiful days that I have ever seen there. Go figure. Clear skies, pleasant temperature, low humidity. On that morning, I took the opportunity to go to the Morgan side of the Raritan Bay Waterfront Park to see how well it fared. Well, it fared pretty well (unlike a year later when Sandy blasted through). In addition to the usual sea gulls, I saw what is now my favorite Raritan Bay bird, a Great White Egret – at least that is what my untrained eye thinks it was. This one was walking along the marsh occasionally poking its head into the water for a little fish then decided to go get a better view.
