This morning Warren Bielenberg and I heard two least bitterns at Kyker Bottoms.
This makes the third consecutive trip to Kyker Bottoms in which I have heard
least bitterns. (They were previously heard on April 28th and May 13th.) I

visit on May 13th. It is not great, but it is perhaps better than the short
snippet from April 29th. Here is a link to that updated eBird report with the
