Actually, about two weeks ago on I-295 where it crosses the Chickahominy River, 
I look over and saw about 20 egrets.  Very surprised to see that many 
together..no sight of them after that.

It's not that rare to see one in Richmond. I've seen them regularly at Henricus 
and other places nearby.

    I thought I read on here that someone had seen a Great Egret in Richmond, 
but I'm not sure. Anyway, whether or not anyone else has, I saw one in Richmond 
today. It was at Meadow Farm Museum/Crump Park, along the big pond where all 
the Canada Geese hang out. It flew around the pond for a bit, then flew up and 
perched in a tree. It's rare to see an egret in Richmond - even rarer to see 
one perch in a tree!
