Least Bitterns everywhere

How would you like to have Least in your name?  Seems like an insult.  Compare that to the Magnificent Frigatebird.

Going bird watching at the same locations over the course of a year lets you see some interesting changes.  Least Bitterns are supposed to be here all year but don’t really see any at all in the winter.  Then, all of a sudden,  they are everywhere you look.  A few days ago I was at the Celery Fields area and they were coming right up to the observation deck and posing for the cameras.

I really like these little guys.  They fly with an easy to spot “bottom heavy” appearance,  and always seem to look angry or intense.
