American Bittern

Can you spot the bittern?
We've been having amazing luck with seeing bitterns lately. Everything I read about them says how elusive and difficult they are to spot, but we've seen four in the last two times of birding.

They really are amazing birds and I'm so glad we've been fortunate enough to have them pose for us in their "freeze" position so we can get some photos (and proof!)...

This is the bittern we saw as we were driving into the parking lot at the Colusa National Wildlife Refuge. He was long gone by the time we did the auto tour and drove back out. I'm so glad we were there at the right time!
