Hello Birders, I was alerted this afternoon to an "unusual" dead bird in an alley in Carytown today. I went to the location off of Auburn and Cary and confirmed the identification as Virginia Rail. I'll post some photos on my Flickr site later. I know that VA Rail has been recorded in the past in the City (Wetlands I believe), but this is the first I have seen. The bird was likely an overnight arrival as it was not wet and in fair condition, but not good for preservation. Arun Bose Richmond You are subscribed to VA-Richmond-General.
