Angelo Marra — Clapper Rail in Flight at MCM

DSCanglelo rail_6889
Following up on Ray Duffy's report of a Clapper Rail at Mill Creek Marsh, Angelo Marra got several photos of said rail — including one in flight. Don't see one of those every day!

Says Angelo: "The rail is located along the furthest part of of the trail in MCM. When you pass the back bridge along the turnpike the trail turns to the left is where the flight picture was taken. Stop and listen in that area,and you will hear this big mouth. (Thanks, Angelo!)

P.S. A Clapper Rail was reported as a heard bird yesterday at DeKorte.
