I went up to Horicon Marsh early this morning to see what was going on. Lots of Great Egrets as what has been reported there. Some of the other birds seen to note, Black-necked Stilts, Dowitchers, Black-crowned Night Herons, Sora, Great Blue Herons, Black Terns and a American Bittern, a long awaited life bird for me. I did not get a shot of this bird as it flew in front of me as I was just pulling up on the shoulder on Hwy 49. As I talked with a couple of birders on the Hwy moments later, they too had seen the American Bittern. Lots of juvenile birds seen today, too many to list. It was a beautiful day at the marsh with a cool breeze and mostly sun. Most images are of the Great Egrets and Great Blue Herons, some of the other birds were in the harsh sunlight to the south of Hwy 49, no images taken. Images were taken on August 5, 2016
