The following is a series of photos of a most photogenic American Bittern. We visited Horicon Marsh NWR in central Wisconsin and while driving along one of the dike roads (Main Dike Road) we discovered (among MANY) bitterns, this one right next to the road. We were able to stand as close as 5 feet from him and Dakota and Birdfreak fired away close to 500 photos. Please enjoy a few of them!!

We have much more to report on from our wonderful visit to Horicon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge including a full review of the Audubon Inn, our night’s retreat after a full day of windy birding.
