American Bittern

One of the most reliable local places that i know of to actually SEE American Bittern is the Crown Zellerbach Trail in Scappoose in the spring. It is not uncommon to see one to three individuals haunting the Polygonum bogs along the trail.

Below is an insane amount of pictures taken of Bitterns this spring.  Geesh, when they just stand there it’s hard to stop snapping pictures!
