King/Clapper Rail

In marsh next to ecotrail boardwalk. The rail ran quickly from one clump of vegetation to another and was partially backlit, so we didn't get a good look at the plumage, just the size and general ID.

Estimate. At least 8 definitive birds associated with individual nests, plus a couple that were always flying overhead.

1

Very large raptor soaring over marsh, coming within 100 feet of the wildlife drive, 50 or 60 feet off the ground. Due to lack of white markings on wings/body, we believe it was a subadult Golden Eagle. Reasoning: 1) smaller-looking head than juvenile Bald Eagle we had just seen 2) wings were longer and slimmer than juv. Bald Eagle we had just seen 3) paler nape when the bird turned during soaring. We're sure it wasn't a vulture. Looking through other checklists, it looks like this is a continuing bird.
