Ridgeway Rail sighting Pr. Isabel


Claude Lyneis
 

Feb 4, there weren’t so many birds out on this quiet blue sky afternoon just north of Point Isabel.  I was at the bridge where the S 51st entrance joins the shoreline trail and spotted a Ridgeway Rail.  While they are known for this area, it isn’t often that they show themselves.

The usual suspects were there, Great Egret, Snowy Egret, American Wigeon, Red-tailed Hawk, Goldeneye, and White-crowned Sparrows.
