I saw 3 Clapper Rails at Silver Sands State Park today, 2 from the boardwalk through the marsh, and one with chicks (balls of grey fluff) in the grasses at the west/Walnut Beach end of the marsh.  Also 2 Glossy Ibis fly-overs, a Yellow-crowned Night Heron and a female Bobolink. Last week I saw a male Bobolink flying around with 4-5 female/juvenile Bobolinks. Last week a killdeer was nesting in the Piping Plover enclosure, but no sign of her today.
