Baby Bittern!

Baby Bittern

Roy Woodford came upon a baby Least Bittern Sunday at the Kearny Marsh. Roy writes:

Very early on Sunday morning, I turned a corner at the Kearny Marsh and, much to my surprise, I found this little guy was sitting about 2 feet from my head. This is by far the smallest/youngest Least Bittern I’ve ever seen … it wasn’t more than 6 inches  long from the tip of the bill to the feet.

I had to back up to get a few shots … and then quickly left him alone.
