Description

I saw many of these birds, about 5-10 of them. Most of them flitted among the Cattails. I heard some rustling in the Cattails very close to the ground. I am not sure what it was doing. Do they have nests on the ground? Or was it just getting food?

their nests are built right in the cattails, often fairly low but not usually on the ground
