Fwd: Virginia Rail: Prospect Park, Kings Co.; NY

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: ticornis.tumblr.com
