Ayerès Cliff,Tomifobia Nature Trail: Kathy Adams and I had the opportunity to observe an American Bittern (Butor d'Amérique) displaying his nuptial feathers that are on either side of his shoulders. At first we did not think it was a bittern. These feathers were pushed out when he walked, and after about 15 minutes he finally gave his normal pumping sound - Sheila MacLean - Click photo to enlarge
