American Bittern

Like the Wilson's Snipe, it's nice to have some green grass as a background when shooting an American Bittern. When I first started seeing Bitterns at RNWR, they were always along the canal after marker 12. More recently, though, I've started seeing them elsewhere. This one was along the canal near marker 2. It started out on the berm above and slowly made its way down to the water.


  1. Great photos ! Just saw one of these for the first time yesterday.

  2. You mean shoot with a camera
