LEAST BITTERN

A tiny heron, furtive and surpassingly well camouflaged, the Least Bittern is one of the most difficult North American marsh birds to spot. Despite its inconspicuousness, however, the species can be rather common within appropriate habitat in its breeding range.

Long neck.
Long bill.
Crown and back black or dark brownish.
Neck and sides warm orange-brown.
Front of neck and chest striped orange and white.
