The American Bittern is a member of the heron family. They have thick necks and shorter legs than other herons. I found this bittern as I was driving and saw several photographers standing on the side of the road. The marsh it was in is close to the road. Normally the bittern is a shy bird, this bird was not phased by the photographers.
