Clapper Rail

Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge



I could not believe how close I was able to get to these Clapper Rails. They were readily found right next to the road into the wildlife refuge and would walk right up to you. The marsh was filled with rails calling at sunrise. What a neat experience!


Thank you all for your support and comments.
