I just wanted to mention that I had an American Bittern this morning in the marsh at Plum Bank Rd opposite the town beach in Old Saybrook.

Being what an older gentle called me once, a "birdtographer" (lol I suppose I should have been insulted?) I was happy to see it out in the open and able to get a few shots before rushing back to work.
