MA rarities - LITTLE EGRET, NORTHERN LAPWING, ROSS'S GOOSE

Took a day trip east to Massachusetts today with Jake Musser, Phil Rusch, and Glenn Williams purely for some rarity chasing. Our #1 target was the hatch-year LITTLE EGRET in Hyannis.

On our way home we detoured slightly north to view the long-staying NORTHERN LAPWING.

Since we had some time to spare we last checked for the nearby ROSS'S GOOSE, only the second I've seen on the east coast.

Easy birds, almost too easy.
