Hiding in Plain Sight
I haven’t seen many American bitterns, but the ones I have seen have all been surprises. By that, I mean that I usually had stared at a weedy patch of grass in shallow water for some time before seeing this wading bird.
And then I only saw it because it moved.
The American bittern is one of my favorite birds, perhaps because it’s striped feathers are in themselves art.
