We spotted this one while exploring Big Boggy National Wildlife Refuge. I don't think he was as well hidden as he thought! (Click on pictures for a larger version).
Clapper Rails are secretive birds that slide off into the grass as soon as they are spotted, and getting a decent picture can be tough! This one disappeared after just a few seconds.
On our way back from the refuge, we saw another (or the same) Clapper Rail. This one posed facing us for a moment before stalking off.
A morning of birding with both an American Bittern and a Clapper Rail is a good morning!
