Default More Clapper Rail pictures

Just as I thought I missed the chance to take some good shots of the Clapper Rail because of a wrong setting on camera last week. The same Clapper suddenly appeared with a mussel in his bill when I was talking to a fellow photographer at the Arrowhead Marsh today. The pictures turned out a little better this time.

The Clapper Rail is listed by both the Federal and State of California as an endangered species.

Thanks, Scott!

I notice that the Clapper Rail is very nervous and is always on the move. He runs quickly toward the grassy area in the Marsh when his nest is where he will eat in his privacy. I think my shutter speed is still a little slow and I need to increase the shutter speed a little to get a clearer shot of this Rail.
