Today's nature moment

Clapper Rails (and all Rails) are normally secretive marsh birds, hiding in the marsh and rarely seen. This one, which I photographed a couple days ago, was an exception, casually going about his (or her) business in full view at the Don Edwards National Wildlife Refuge in Fremont, CA. Not only did I have time to take the pictures (and a dozen more) below, but I even shot a short movie. Click on the pictures for a larger view.
