Roadside Birding

I traveled a lot in May, which gave me the opportunity to take pictures of new places. I took this picture of an American bittern from the road in Quivira National Wildlife Refuge in central Kansas. Birding is something I do to relax, and photography is work, so I don’t usually take bird photos—I don’t want to ruin one of my hobbies with work. But this was so easy, I couldn’t resist.American bittern, Beth Partin Photos, Quivira National Wildlife Refuge
