Clapper Rail, Yes!



The rail show continues at Bailey Tract, east pond, Sanibel, FL. Now there have been 3 Clapper Rails and 2 Soras seen. Plus there may be 2 Wilson's Snipe also. This Clapper Rail walked out into the sun and right by all the birders, much to the delight of the photographers there. Usually the rails stay hidden in shadow in the cattails.
Rails are awesome birds and it was such a delight to see one in great light.

Very cool! I heard them in North Carolina, but never did see one. Great photos!
