Least Bittern and one of it's chicks at SPI

This was one of the highlights of my visit as was so neat to see a Least Bittern chick. While I actually have seen one, and even photographed it, once and here in Colorado it was not the best view. It is always challenging to observe and especially photograph these little guys as they are surrounding by reeds.
I also got to see one of the parents when it was out likely hunting for food for the chicks (there were 3 reported). SeEtta
