least bittern at dead horse
eric gofreed found a singing LEAST BITTERN at dead horse state park this morning. nanette, terry blows, & i heard it calling about 945, but nobody saw the bird. it was on the island of grasses in the 2nd pond. in my relatively worthless opinion on this, i think if the bird stays the best chance of seeing it would be to be there at dawn or even slightly before dawn.

RE: least bittern at dead horse
i did dead horse today as part of the yavapai namc and amazingly eric's LEAST BITERN was standing on the edge of the grasses. then it just flew 20 feet or so and went into the grasses. this is exactly the same place eric found it a week ago. so it is still there!!! maybe it might have a mate?

RE: least bittern at dead horse
On Sunday evening 5/19, the Least Bittern was still there. At 6:20 PM on the SW part of the island I heard it (barely, above the racket of the Great-tails). Then at 6:30 PM it came out to the edge of the vegetation; easily identified in the evening sun.
