Two Least Bitterns are still present in Bronte Marsh and can best be seen in the early morning or evening.  They can be heard calling but patience is needed to see them since they make rapid flights across the marsh at infrequent intervals then quickly disappear into the reeds for long periods.  They are particularly frustrating to photograph: http://home.cogeco.ca/~alexandra5/bittern_Least.html 

Bronte Marsh is just north-west of Lakeshore Road W. in Oakville. 
There's a small car park on W. River St.  Follow the path (under the bridge) on the west side of Bronte Creek for a couple of hundred metres to where the creek opens out into the marsh.
