Least Bittern at Oceano County Park


Hello all,

A singing LEAST BITTERN was present early this afternoon on the small vegetated island at Oceano County Park. I could hear it best from the Air Park Dr. bridge (especially during breaks in traffic on nearby roads) but was never able to see the bird. Another birder reported seeing the continuing American Redstart in the state campground but it was not singing/obvious when I wandered through at the ideal birdwatching time of ~1230 pm. I saw plenty of local breeders but no lingering/late migrants.
