|Eastern Phoebe at Lake Crabtree's Southport Entrance (in an industrial park). I would post the snipe photo, but it is actually really terrible and it looks like a mud clod. But it wasn't a mud clod. I promise.|
It was. The bittern was just a few yards away, hunkered down in the woody brush near the pond. I spent about an hour observing it slowly and stealthily feed on tadpoles. It was well worth my third trip out there to see this spectacular bird. For my video, click here.
