We found this young bird sitting in the swamp just off the side of a dirt road. I assumed the moment I tried to slip out the car door, which was close, he would be gone.
Not only did he stay, he froze.
This gave me time to even change to my position a little.
This young bird is a drab brown allowing him to blend into his surroundings. They change significantly as an adult. Below is a photograph of an adult I photographed a week ago.
