Waders at Brigantine

Wednesday I made an early morning trip to Forsyth NWR, Brigantine Unit, for some very enjoyable birding and photography.

The highlight was the American Bittern being inconspicuous in the grasses near the first observation tower.

In several locations there were immature Little Blue Herons ...
