Rufous-necked Wood-Rail, very brief video but close views

One last and very short video clip of the Rufous-necked Wood-Rail that I left before because it was so short. However, it shows the Rufous-necked Wood-Rail found as it forages less than a hundred feet away though on the other side of the cattails. This is the closest I saw this bird and I had to shoot it through the cattails that were between the trail and the marsh where the bird was foraging. I shot it on Sunday evening, July 14, at almost 7:30 pm but the lightening was quite good for showing the coloration of this rare bird (you can stop this 5 second video to get good views). SeEtta
