Clapper Rail, Rallus longrirostris; Feathers fluffed after preening
Here are a couple of more shots of Clapper Rails from the Bolivar Peninsula. The top shot is a capture of a rail as it walked into an open space between patches of reeds. The bottom shot is the same bird from the October 26th post. It was taken as the rail fluffed its feather during a bout of preening.
