American Bittern at Stonebridge Trail

Charles Jackson

Viewed from 33.013571, -117.249917. Stopped with Josh to view the ponds just below the west side of the mesa there and he spotted it just below us. Watched it gig for frogs and it remained in the open quite a while. We got Donna and an Orange County birder onto it too.
(No luck on the Sage Thrasher.)
