Black Rail

*Rare, continuing. Heard distantly (kee-kee grr) starting around 9:30pm off the E side of the road where the woods and marsh meet. Clearly 2, as one would sometimes start before the other had finished.

The two call simultaneously around 7 seconds in. A Black Rail surveyor was present and had used playback of Black and Virginia Rails prior to this

*High count, mass movements just before dark that continued with flight calls afterward. Photo shows 1 of about 3 groups before it got dark. Identifiable I'm sure but I'm not confident on what's in there. Dunlin / Semipalmated Sandpipers were my best guess.
