April 28 - Local rarities chase

Two rare birds were found nearby to each other, one in Middlesex County & the other in Somerset County.
First up was the Cattle Egret at Negri-Nepote Grasslands in Somerset.

Shortly afterwards we sent to Bicentennial Park and saw the very cooperative Prothonotary Warbler.
The bird was gathering nesting material and showing this off to a female. 

Both of these birds were drive-up/walk-up you cannot ask for anything easier.
