Bittern


Leif and I were driving down Rob’s gravel road and saw a bird tiptoeing from one side of the road to the other. It looked like a tall bird all hunched over, like it was hiding. We drove up slowly and saw that it was an American bittern. We got some pics, then Leif went out to try to get closer and it flew off. As we sat in the car, it did an impersonation of a reed, with its bill pointed straight up. See if you can spot it.
