On our way home from the Pineries in late September, we decided to take a quick look at the Perth Wetlands. The water was low and we didn’t really see anything of note, until I spotted something stick-like in the grass at the edge of one of the ponds. Sure enough, it was an American Bittern doing a fine impression of a marsh grass, or a stick! Pretty exciting as it was a lifer for us!
