Observation details

The first West Virginia and Preston County record of this species. The birds were reported by an unknown person to John Boback of the West Virginia Bird Records Committee earlier today. Medium-sized heron-like birds in juvenile plumage. Mostly white overall with a pale pink wash on the wings. The birds swung their long spoon-shaped bills from side to side in shallow water while feeding.
