The Weekend Expedition to Reifel Bird Sanctuary with Wild Research was a fun outing, made better by the good company and great weather. Highlights of the trip were a Great Horned Owl, Saw Whet Owl and American Bittern. Only the Bittern was a cooperative model. I tried a few low angle shots on feeding ducks, but did not have much time to work out the kinks. I think I will try to do more of this in the future, as it is an interesting and humorous perspective.
Below is a selection of the photos…Check out that lovely Bittern!
Wow, I have heard many Bitterns but I have never been lucky enough to actually get a glimpse of one let alone photograph it. Nice Shot!
Thanks! We thought it was odd to see it relatively unobstructed, but I guess it had faith in its camouflage!
Thanks! We do have some cool stuff here as well!
