  1. Number observed: 1

    Details: I was surprised by a little Yellow Rail this morning in the parking lot of the Alviso Don Edwards Refuge Nature Center. It was 9am, Low tide, heavy fog. It actually hopped under my car and hid, which gave me time to go back, open my car and grab my camera. It seemed a little disoriented and had trouble getting up the 7 inch parking lot curbs. The Yellow Rail was calling tick-tick-tick and hopping around the California Fuchsia plantings in the parking lot median. It caught a beetle in the leaf litter and bobbed in and out of the brush. I looked it up when I got home and saw it was rare for our area. I was told by a biologist at the Refuge that this is a new bird for the list. Photos here
