Probably my best non-mallard duck photo.

It is a bittern pill to swallow, but I have never seen an American Bittern, so I do not have a photo of one. But I am enjoying everyone else's great shots. TFS! 🙂

I saw one once, forty-some years ago, and I think Mom or maybe the camp counselors had told me not to take my Instamatic into a canoe, so I don't have a photo.

They are permanent residents here. 

Learning their song will help a lot.  It's varied, but getting an idea of the common versions may well lead to your lifer.  They're not usually as cooperative as the ones in these pictures.

I think you are misunderstanding what it means for a bird to breed in your area, and for a few members of the species to overwinter in your area. Permanent resident don’t migrate, or exhibit perhaps small elevational migration within a given area.

Yellow warblers are not permanent resident in Orange County. In fact, they are not known to be permanent residents anywhere in California.
