The exceptionally confiding American Bittern found by Natalie Moore in Rocky River Reservation earlier this week continues to build a fan base, as dozens upon dozens if not hundreds of birders (including those that made the trek from MI and PA) have been thrilled with close studies of completely intriguing bird. I’ve received dozens of texts and emails of thanks and “lifer!” in reference to this bird. As of the evening of Thursday, April 5th, it was still present in it’s favored patch of marsh.
Thanks to Dane Adams, one our most talented bird photographers in Ohio, another great bittern shot (that he took yesterday) is here for all to enjoy, below. We are exceedingly lucky here in NE Ohio to have two stunningly talented bird photographers – Dane Adams and Chuck Slusarczyk Jr.
