The most interesting bird today was a least bittern. I have seen them here many times (although this is the only place I have ever seen one); however, today, before dawn, the least bittern was swelling up his throat and making a strange clucking sound. I found this quite entertaining. I had to use a flash to get a clear shot, but it worked out well. Also interesting was the brown thrasher, which I have also seen here before, but not for quite some time. Today I counted five!
