Searching | American Bittern | New York
The American Bittern is a bird that can often be found wading around the shoreline of bodies of water.
For me it often seems like the American Bittern is a more reclusive and more well camouflaged shorebird than most. I only ever see them creeping around in tall foliage. I have never seen them out in the open like many other shorebirds.
American Bitterns are a medium sized shorebird. Not tiny like a sandpiper or large like a heron. Right in the middle. The Goldilocks shorebird.
This American Bittern has such a cool look with its neck out stretched among all the foliage.
