Nice set Chief. I don't think I have seen the Bittern before. The Cormorants are very efficient fishers.
Thanks, Spyder. I've seen them a few times and been able to photograph them three times with varying degrees of success. But I've never seen or photographed one with a ruff or crest or whatever that would be called. Still trying to find more information about that.
Nice photos. Sometimes I miss FL, glad you are enjoying it.
Thank you, Sam. Truth be told, I really don't care for Florida that much. The bird photo ops are the only thing that we are here for. It's nice to be in a warm place for the winter but I'm a west of the Mississippi kind of guy. Plenty of warm places for the winter there. But yes, we are enjoying our stay here. I'm glad you liked the photos and I appreciate the comment.
