;) cheers.

It must be a Bittern, a bird of the Heron family. I am not familiar with the american species... One of Botaurus genus?

Daniel, congratulate on this photo! I think, it is an American Bittern. Inessa might presume correct. You can find out more at Wikipedia. The European kind is very rare, it is very difficult to discover one.

Greetings of Vienna, Manfred

Hi Daniel, you asked a question in the title and i answered:). It is one of the bitterns, definitely, i just don't know which one. The bird is not common, you were lucky to get this shot. That's it.:)

May be there was a nest nearby?

Must be Black Bittern (Ixobrychus flavicollis)

Came over here upon another users request and from the looks of it you got a picture of a Green Heron.

Congrats on your picture

Well, I don't know much about bitterns, but I've seen quite a few Blue Herons in many different poses, and I have to agree this looks more like a heron than a bittern; especially the bill shape and the little crest on his head. Just my 2 cents.

This is a Green Heron!

It IS a Green Heron. Bitterns are way more secretive.
