Oh the irony
Just a few hours after making that last post I was able to get some better photos of a Least Bittern. It was at a bit of a distance but at least he posed for the camera. In addition to that it was just a great morning for bird watching. I got to the Celery Fields at sunrise and saw >150 Black Bellied Whistling Ducks fly off. They must have spooked the 40 or 50 Cattle Egret, who then flew off. That was followed by a large group of Glossy Ibis. The area seems to have recently become a popular resting spot for the large birds. Didn’t see any Wood Ducks though.
