These are so shy -- I usually only ever hear them! Nice capture.

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.
