I've seen them all over and never had an opportunity for a good clean image. While walking along a slough the other day, I looked to my left and one was sitting there at about 15 yards. I got 1 shot before he flew off.

You lucky guy, that's a nice shot for this skittish bird. Now you know where it lives, use some camo and go get some more.
