Virginia Rail - First time I have actually seen the whole bird - July 5, 2010

Finally a Virginia Rail. This bird played games with Janice and I for the longest time. We could hear him and occasionally see him running between the marsh leaves. Boy are they fast. Then suddenly he decided to cross the road. Here are a few of the shots I took.

  1. I'm exhausted just looking at these pics of it- what a fun time, tho, Ann!

  2. Hello Ann, These are awesome images! I recently saw a rail in my son's school yard in St. Paul, MN. I wanted to share the this on my facebook page. I posted a link to this blog so others can see your wonderful work. If this is something you do not want, please let me know and I will remove the link. Thank you for sharing your talent!
