American Bittern 20110323

Mary Lou spotted this American Bittern during our morning visit to Chapel Trail Nature Preserve. It actually ran for cover, quite unusual in our experience. Bitterns are usually very slow and deliberate in their movements. It then hid so effectively that we had trouble finding it in a small patch of rushes. Visit
