Green Grass Curtain
Friends, this American bittern is hunting from the cover of a curtain of grasses, he/she waggles the white on his chin over the water, we think he uses his waggle like a fishing lure, when something is attracted to the wiggle waggle, he stabs his bill in and comes back with a small fish other small swamp critter. til Tomorrow MJ
