My first stop was Riverlands to test out my new Vortex Razor scope. While scoping the edge of the marsh just past Heron Pond I spotted a Least Bittern feeding in the high grass across the water. Measured on GoogleEarth it was about 180 yards out there, pretty far for any decent photos. I finished the day at Columbia Bottom CA where I found many Black-crowned Night-Herons at the slough across the road from the boardwalk.
