Least bittern, Rondeau Provincial Park, Sept 5, 2018

Another from the pontoon boat.
Anne managed to spot this least bittern hiding in the reeds.

They are about 11-14 inches in length and are well camouflaged.
You have to love those feet.

Ixobrychus exilis

The least bittern is one of the smallest herons in the world.
