I made somewhat irregular trip home mid-day to give our dog a quick walk. To my delight, encountered an American Bittern at our pond, which is located on Pleasant Hollow Rd (between the Mineah/Mt. Pleasant fields and Ringwood Road). This is the 2nd time I've had that nice surprise at the pond. I surmise s/he-they may be coming over for a quick visit from a larger, cattail-rich marshland nearby.
