American Bitterns are large, solitary, cryptic birds. They are most often found deep in reeds where they blend in seamlessly. Occasionally, you may find them basking in the sun with their neck tilted up standing dead still.
In Florida, they are found in the wetlands, during the winter and sometimes into late spring.
