    Wow Harish. I've never seen such close-ups of these species. Well done. :smile:
     
  3. Thanks Frank.
    It took me nearly three years to spot the Clapper Rail for a photograph so I was excited about it.

    Excellent shots
    I have two types of rails and no Sora.
    Tough birds to spot also.
    Fantastic close shots
     
  5. Very well done, some of the best I've seen of this bird.

    Harish, nice shots of the Clapper Rail. Did you find the bird at Backbay, Newport Beach? I have been told one is there, but have yet to find him/her ... a very nice find for you!

    Miko,
    it was yesterday at Back Bay as there was low tide and these birds were walking across to water side. Still it was hard to get them to stay still if only for a fraction of a second.
    Thanks.
