An astounding discovery in an unlikely place maybe the first ever there, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden hosted a super rare LEAST BITTERN.
Of all places , the Japanese Garden section showed off its gem with the BITTERN on the shoreline opposite the Pagoda structure with the small deck. The island to the left ( with a decorative wood bridge) is the landmark where the BITTERN might have been for a few days. It could also be viewed from the narrow trail at the covered bench area on that side.
Brooklyn Bird Club posted pictures on its Facebook page.
If it's still there tomorrow, take note you need a timed ticket reservation to enter,free if you are a member; otherwise $18 admission fee. See the BBG website. It might be worth it!
