Light-footed clapper rail

Rallus longirostris levipes


"The light-footed clapper rail (Rallus longirostris levipes) is found exclusively in salt marshes between Santa Barbara, California and San Quintin Bay, Baja California, Mexico. Nesting occurs primarily in dense cordgrass, wrack deposits, and in hummocks of high marsh within the low marsh zone [1]. Due to loss and degradation of salt marshes, the overall acreage and suitability of wetlands for the light-footed clapper rail has declined. The species was listed as endangered in 1970."
