[va-bird] Re: Black Rail ???

The Black Rail was heard briefly at Huntley Meadows this morning (Friday, 14
June). I heard it twice between 8 and 8:15 a.m., both times calling for less
than a minute before falling silent. I heard it from the same spot along the
boardwalk that was previously described, but the bird was some distance from
the boardwalk when it called (and not within the area encircled by the
boardwalk). The two times I heard it this morning were the only times I
heard it while spending two hours at the spot last night and a little over
four hours this morning. Maybe it will be more vocal tonight. Also at
Huntley last night were the Glossy Ibis (also spotted this morning) and two
adult Yellow-crowned Night-Herons (fly-bys) along with the more usual
species.
