Well At Least He Got One!

Early yesterday morning we had a Least Bittern fishing in the swamp. This variety of bittern is fairly rare for our area and is generally a very secretive bird so we were thrilled to see this colorful, active guy in action.

Normally we might see the American Bittern which are cool birds but it was a real treat seeing the Least!
