Least Bittern- Berks County

Drew WeberBird Sightings, Birding, Listing1 Comment

I picked my 314th state bird this afternoon when Justine and I stopped by a pond in Maxatawny Township, Berks County where a Least Bittern has been reported over the last few days. I was expecting to spend a good amount of time waiting for the bittern to peak its head out of thick vegetation but I lucked out; the little guy was just hanging out on the far side of the pond in full view. We watched it for about 20 minutes before it mysteriously disappeared when we weren’t watching it.
