Ridgway's Rails

Ridgway's Rails

As of July 2014, the Clapper Rail in west is now named Ridgway's Rail. ~ This pair of endangered "Clapper" Rails was taken in the marshy Tijuana Estuary in Imperial Beach, California. They were hiding in this small bush on the edge, after the high tide flooded most of their habitat. As reclusive as they are, they didn't seem to be worried about my nearby presence.
