Of all the birds I have admired over the years, I must admit that the American Bittern is by far the most interesting. I had only seen them a few times in the wild and as luck would have it I could never catch them on film until now. I am simply fascinated by this bird, everything from its unusual plunger like call to the way it mimics the windy marsh grass has made it one of my favorites for years. I have paddled right between them while I could hear them singing from only a few feet away and yet still without being able to capture a glance of these amazingly stealthy marsh birds. The American Bittern needs our help because the wetlands it calls home are becoming more rare every year. Its up to each one of us to do our own part in our own community to help preserve the natural world. There really is a future in a clean and healthy Earth so I hope you can join me in helping protect our Mother Earth and all its wonders. I hope you enjoy and share this film with as many as you can to keep spreading the conservation message. Until next time, you can join me at my website http://www.naturewalkswithmark.org and thanks to the support of my friends we now have a new group helping to raise wildlife awareness called the Nature Walks Conservations Society http://www.naturewalksCS.org
