Bird Board

Rail at Matheson

Saw a rail crossing the main street going into the park this week. I was on my bike, no binos, it was before the gate. The bird was against the light so I could not identify it but the silhouette was unmistakable. I don't think it was a sora because it had a longer neck but I can't find any ID of either Soras or Rails in the park on Ebird for a long time so figured I share.

The most likely rail in the area where the road passes through mangroves is Clapper Rail.

That bird matches what I saw, long neck, long legs, posture matches.
