What is this??
Some birds are so well camouflaged and sneaky that they can be really hard to find.
This bird is known for stalking about in marsh grass, and freezing with its bill pointed straight up when alarmed. In this posture it blends well with the surrounding grasses and becomes almost invisible.
But sometimes they cooperate as this bird did at the South Padre Island birding center. Lots of folks like us got their "best ever" pictures of the American Bittern!!
