While sitting on my deck surrounded by 4 feet of water in Silver Sands in Milford on Sunday, I spotted movement in my large pyracantha. After bringing the spotting scope out, I realized that a Clapper Rail had taken refuge deep within the bush waiting for the water to recede. I don't know how it managed to snuggle into that bush with prickers that are huge and lethal.
