Least Bittern – Viera Wetlands; Viera, Florida: While at the alligator farm at Saint Augustine I made a quick trip to Viera to check for least bitterns. I searched all afternoon with no success. It was not until about thirty minutes before sunset that I saw a least bittern flying across the top of a patch of reeds. Watching where the bittern disappeared I set out to search for the bird. Within a few minutes this bittern came to the edge of the reed bed and presented itself to be photographed.
