Well, not easy to see that one. It preferred to stay hidden. I had heard there was one about 20kn from my home. This is what I got to see. It is not that uncommon. You can hear it but rarely see it This was the second time I´ve seen it. The white beside it is snow.

  1. WOW! It is so well hidden you can just about see the bird. Great find.

  2. Den är väldigt bra kamouflerad i vassen.

  3. They do like to hide in tall grasses to continue being camouflaged. Great image showing just that.
