Artist's Description

Australasian Bitterns specialise in living in dense beds of reeds and rushes, where they are surprisingly difficult to see, as they are particularly well camouflaged among reeds. Added to this, when alarmed, they stand still with neck stretched upwards and bill pointing skywards. Sometimes they even sway in the breeze, in time with the surrounding reeds. This makes them blend remarkably well into the surrounding vegetation. It is hardly surprising that the species is seldom recorded.
