John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge, Philadelphia, PA
I had never heard of this bird when I joined some other photographers in the early morning at the refuge. Our patience observing the soft call of this bird was rewarded when he climbed out from behind the reeds. Subsequently, I have learned how fortunate we were to see this secretive bird.
