These are so shy -- I usually only ever hear them! Nice capture.
Thanks Noah Citizen and beallburton for the id suggestions!
as per the time of the spotting, thegrey head, rufous flancks and lack of markings on the flanks, I think it may be an immature clapper rail.The virginia rail should be already heading north and the other species are smaler or different color.
Some kind of rail, I think, but hard to tell what kind. Cool spotting.
