Chasing the Cinnamon Bittern of Kin Town
Heat and humidity have me getting up and out with the camera before sunup.
My air-conditioned room is usually about 30% humid. Outdoors it's over 90% after sunrise.
Each morning I hike to an area where two of these birds hang out.
Getting into position before 6:30 gives me time to stretch, exercise, and drink coffee.
Birds aren't on any kind of schedule. They might appear anytime between 7 and 9 AM.
They really don't come just to pose for the camera. They stretch and wiggle around a bit.
It doesn't do much good to cuss and talk to them but, I do anyway.
And, I get this look like, "Is there a problem Mister?"
Nobody wants pictures of stupid-looking birds so, I move on.
This Cinnamon Bittern had a better attitude and a terrific background.
The time was 7:19 AM and the hike home would be over before ten.
