Virginia Rail, Rallus limicola
The Virginia rail, Rallus limicola, is a small and secretive bird that lives in marshes throughout North America. Despite been relatively common, they are seldom seen and can remain completely hidden despite being only a few feet away.
Their long toes help them to walk on top of submerged vegetation and they can compress their bodies laterally to slip between reeds and grass.
