7/28 - Silver Sands State Park, Milford
Some days become just special! I went to Silver Sands after the rain stopped on Monday and walking out the boardwalk saw a Clapper Rail on exposed mud. As I watched Clapper chicks appeared, more chicks and another adult - 2 adults and at least 6 chicks walking on mud and in grass. I watched for 35 minutes (and many photos!) as the rails contined to preen and display! When I left they were still showing!
A magical time - some photos at https://www.flickr.com/photos/batpix1/albums/72157671779945115/with/28629689586/
