Yesterday this one flew down into a klong in front of me when I was riding my bike.

I could see by the flight that it was a bittern and it was nice enough to stay around fishing while I got some pix.

When I got home and had a good look it was different to any I had seen before and different to any in the books I have.

The colors and in particular the red at the base of the bill.

Aster a fair bit of searching I found a couple of pix on a site that called it a male yellow bittern in mating plumage.

Must be my week for bitterns.

Spotted this one on the other side of some fairly dense vegetation and had to try to poke the camera through some bushes.

A lot of trouble trying to keep all the leaves and branches out of the way with one hand and work the camera with the other.

So not that wonderful a photo.

Yellow Bittern, presumably female.

Oh yes, and I also got bitten by ants, but that's spelt different.

I'm still experimenting with my new Canon SX 50 and its big telephoto capabilities. This bald eagle was sitting in a tall tree beside a lake that I was on in a boat. I couldn't use a tripod or a timer, so I had to use TV (shutter priority) and hope for the best. The little California quail was running around and wouldn't stop, and he wouldn't let me get too close. Again, I just fired away hand held and hoped for the best.

Nest leaving time.

Some species of chicks get very fat, seems the parents feed them up then leave them to fend for themselves

This young cormorant stood is the same place a couple of meters from a nest for 3 days before disappearing.

Assume it is a little cormorant but possibly not as I didn't see the parents.
