Both Snowy Egrets were foraging together (quite actively, may I add) at 
Purgatory Creek this morning, July 5th, at 8am. (Eden Prairie, Hennepin Co.) 
They stuck to the west edge of the large mudflat.

A scope is a necessity, although from the distance I could make them out due 
to their tiny size. And remember, if you're going in the morning, view from 
the bridge on the east side; if you're going in the evening, view from the 
observation deck (aka "blind") on the west side.

Good birding!
