December 3, 2022

I am a Botaurus lentiginosus
But you know me better by "American Bittern"
I'm known for my ability to blend in with plants
Unless they are all green, then I don't remain hidden.

(Note: This is another one for my family and friends back Boston for whom "bittern" and "hidden" is a perfectly cromulent rhyme.)
