took a brief 2 night trip to Algonquin Park, and was able to get a number of shots of American bitterns. We saw 2 on our first night's paddle, and then 4 the next morning in the same area. I believe they are all juvenile birds based on the fluffy head feathers. I like the bad-hair-day look in #1 and the size of the feet in #3.

D7100, hand held (some with bean bag for support) from a canoe. Some cropping, straightening, pp in LR4. Some shot at 640 ISO so are a bit grainy/noisy. Others taken at ISO 320. All taken with Sigma 150-500 in the 300 to 450 mm range.

Enjoy and take care,
