Rail Road Crossing!

Caution - Rail Road Crossing! from Jane Patterson on Vimeo.

Clapper Rails are notoriously easy to hear and hard to see. In the spring, however, it seems to be a different story. This adult rail repeatedly crossed the road right in front of us to go collect food...probably feeding hungry chicks hidden in the marsh grass.

Video was taken in April 2008 near Rutherford Beach, Cameron, LA.
