Hola todos:

For 2nd day in a row, this small rail, Rallus limicola (Virginia Rail) has been seen around the N shore of the lake.  
I went there this morning, but I was told by another birder that the rail flew from the original spot that was seen yesterday and early this morning.  For almost 20-30 minutes, I looked around, but no luck.  But I moved the original location, and here was the rail.  I was lucky enough to take these photos (attached) of this elusive creature.

Enjoy the pictures, and visit:

Brooklyn is great birding!!!
