Bittern Wiki
Bitterns are a classification of birds in the heron family of Pelican order of wading birds. Species named bitterns tend to be the shorter-necked, often more secretive members of this family.

Bitterns usually frequent reed beds and similar marshy areas, and feed on amphibians, reptiles, insects, and fish.

Unlike the similar storks, ibises, and spoonbills, herons, egrets, pelicans, and bitterns fly with their necks retracted, not outstretched.

If you enjoy bird photography and would like to improve your skills or just photograph with like minded photographers, check out my photography workshops on Wildlife Workshops. You will be AMAZED!
