It took wading out a hundred yards in two and a half feet of mud to get a few good photos but it was certainly worth it. The bird was extremely patient, it allowed me to approach as close as 15 feet away and never flew. I watched and recorded it feeding for around twenty minutes and then turned my attention to wading back to the car and figuring out how to keep the inside of the vehicle clean. I've included a few of the best photos, enjoy!
