Found the secretive bird across the street from the house today and got some nice shots of it before it ran off into the marsh. They almost never fly, but run away, which makes getting good shots of them kind of a fun process.

I have a little bird, oops, that may have unintended meaning! Let me start again, how about a sparrow. This little guy must have had a nest nearby (these are usually ground nesters) because he was very agitated.

You are correct, it is an American Bittern, not a rail!
