Eastern Wood-Pewee was one of the first we saw.
swamp rabbit, most folks were completely disinterested. I was captivated at how large and somewhat bold it was. With really low light in this heavily shaded area I needed to get fairly close for a decent shot, and was able to do so.
Least Bittern to me sitting motionless in some reeds.
EDIT: I'd originally identified this as a Green Heron. Many thanks to Phil Plank for the correction!
Spotted Sandpiper unexpectedly perched on some branches. I've always thought of them as a shorebird and didn't realize they could also be found in marshy areas. I went black and white to draw a little more attention to the pattern in the background water.
Not a bad start, and that's not even including everything I saw at the rookery! Check back for the first of those shots later in the week. :)
