The great egret known as Finger Licking is a favorite of the regulars at the Oceanside Marine Nature Study Area on Long Island, New York. He is an old bird and arrived late as he migrated back from the south after the very mild winter we had in NYC. The naturalists at the park were concerned that we might have lost a friend and when he arrived a month and a half after the other egrets there was a sense of joy in the park. Finger Licking has probably sired most of the great egrets that frequent this wonderful 52 acre preserve located in the heart of suburbia.

Comments and suggestions welcome,

Morris
