Bet no one can see me now . . . . !

I recently saw this American Bittern strolling through the marsh.  American Bitterns are fun to spot, since they are usually very well-camouflaged – they blend right into their surroundings. IMG_9309Variously described as stealthy, secretive, and solitary, the American Bittern reacts to intruders by stopping in his tracks, stretching out his neck, and pointing his nose upward, trying ever so hard to be mistaken for a reed or stalk of marsh grass 😉IMG_9307
