keeping an eye on things

An American Bittern.

allaboutbirds.org says these are carnivores that eat frogs, fish, and insects.

Even though I have seen them take brief flights from one clump of grass to another I don’t think I’ve ever seen one in the air. They migrate and should probably be leaving Florida soon since this is their winter location.
