Marsh on St. Simon's Island, the island next to Jekyll Island, GA
Took a walk by the marsh with the dogs in late afternoon. The dogs paused and there, in the ditch, was a Clapper Rail. Nice! Clappers are secretive marsh birds, who often are active at dusk. We always are thrilled when we see one. They live along the East and Gulf coasts, parts of CA and a few other areas. As I had just said in one of my last posts, think of all the rails that must be in those Georgia marshes, and, lucky us, we found one.
