Least bittern at Laguna Blanca


Linus Blomqvist
 

To the best of my bird ID ability, the bird in the attached photo is a least bittern, which I just saw at Laguna Blanca. Tiny heron, smaller than nearby black-crowned night-herons. Warm brown on back (or at least wings, I saw it only from the side or facing me), light underparts, brown stripes on white on throat, and a black cap. Elongated neck, bittern-style. I have more pictures (all bad) and a short video.
