    My aunt has lived in north-central SD for over 50 years so I have been visiting this area my whole life. I have always been amazed at the amount of wildlife that make their homes here. Here are 2 species that were NOT on my list to photograph. The plains of SD are not what comes to mind as a hotspot for American Bitterns. I have only ever seen red-necked grebes one other time in my life - with no photos until now. The other thing that impressed me was how cooperative the wildlife was. I am always quiet and move slowly when entering an animal's habitat. I had wildlife approaching me most of the time. I just sat and waited.
