A female Least Bittern in the reeds just outside of her nesting site.

The nest is in an impossible to shoot clump of reeds. But now that there are chicks in the nest, the parents will have to spend more time out in the open hunting for food to feed the family.

Hopefully I will soon be able to get better, less cluttered shots of mom and dad and maybe, eventually, even the chicks.
