Calling All Bird People

Does anyone know what kind of bird this is?
They are sitting out on our back fence and have been for quite awhile.
I don't want to get too close and have them fly away.
Any ideas?
After some Goggle searching, I think they might be Least Bitterns.
Can anyone confirm that?

  2. How cool! I love them. They look so exotic and unusual AND interesting. This site has a recording of the least bittern call http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Least_Bittern/id Do they sound anything like that? Great pictures too by the way!

  7. It's great you noticed such an unusual bird! Send the photo or take it to the Indiana Dunes State Park nature center and someone there can ID it, but from the Peterson Field Guides Eastern Birds it does look like the least bittern (a lousy name).
