Number observed: 1
Details: "A male Yellow Rail was flushed by a group of bird students in the Convis Township Marsh twelve miles east of Battle Creek, Michigan, April 30, 1933. The white wing patches were easily observed. Later after several minutes of extensive search C. J. Henry saw it squatting on the ground, almost at his feet and we reached down and picked it up. The bird is now in my collection." This specimen now resides at UMMZ (74776).
