Least Bittern

least-bitterns-2 least-bitterns-3Unbelievably hard to find, it can be right in front of you yet invisible, then once you see it, you can’t miss it, but don’t dare take your eyes off of it, because it’s just as hard to find the second and third time even tho it’s hardly moved!

Least Bittern 1

A walk in the marsh

Bitterns are extremely hard to find, often when at a marsh I can hear them in the vegetation, but they are shy to be seen.¬†This one was at Rondeau Provincial Park, he stood in this same place all day and there wasn’t any convincing him to move, it was a stand off!
