[birdky] Western Henderson Co.: Horseshoe Road slough; injured Great Egret

I checked out Horseshoe Road slough this morning (6/19). Nothing of note.

Great blue heron 2
Mallards 8 f & 1 m plus 2 families
Wood duck family
Killdeer 35
Spotted sandpiper 1

I stopped by the Sloughs to look for Moorhens: none seen.
But, there was a Great Egret with broken leg. As it was flying
away the leg just kind of dangled and flopped, while the good
leg was in the normal flight position.

Kind of sad looking.
