Bittern by the South Padre Bug...TEXAS (8 April)

Today I learnt firsthand the joys of birding South Padre, tame birds is an understatement. This fantastic Least Bittern obviously thought I was just not there as it crept around within 2 feet of me on the boardwalk, gasping and shooting down at it. And its not just bitterns, Reddish Egrets, shorebirds and warblers seem to behave in atypical fashion at South Padre abandoning normal protocol and making for amazing photo opportunities.

Looking forward to more of this tomorrow!
