May 4, 2015: American Bittern

The second American Bittern this season was found at Pond J.  When surrounded by more brown vegetation, the bittern blends in with the stems.  Bitterns have the tendency to point their bills skyward, with their chest and belly stripes aiding in the camouflage.  5/5/15 (Wolf. Oesterreich)
