It didn't come out in the open for us but we did see a Bittern at Steigerwald Lake NWR today. While we were watching an active Oriole nest, I turned and saw the butt end of the bittern landing in the grasses. Eventually, it came out of the densest patch and pointed its bill skyward to match its surroundings. But when it bent its neck it became a shape that "just didn't fit" with the tall grass.
No other photos today....get out and find yourself a bittern!
