Remarks :We saw one Cattle Egret trapped with blue color cloth in road side water canal. First we assumed that it was playing with cloth but when we came close we found that cloth was stuck in its bill. It may be difficult for it to eat. We try to catch the Cattle Egret many time but naturally its afraid of close proximity of human. At last it flies away very far. So we left the place in hope that it will be alright and cloth may come out naturally. - VP & PM
