Randy, great shot and an excellent find. These guys are so hard to find even when you know they are there.

I have seen an American bittern as Reifel bird sanctuary a few times but they are almost impossible to spot.

Cheers,

Great catch Randy. Not only did you photograph a rare bird, you did it with aplomb.
thanks Gordon

thanks Alexis, we used to have a member here named Jessie Slinger who we called the bittern whisperer. She always found them at Viera. She would drive with me as the spotter and even though we were often just a few feet away it took me over a minute to 'see' them.

Nice catch Randy as always , focus accuracy and color so nice.
Same here in Canada not much.
thanks Bob
To spot one of one these guys is to be applauded, but you've gone even further and done a terrific job with this shot Randy.
thanks buddy
