Virginia Rail in Loring Park

I found this guy in the North pond in Loring Park on Monday. Having only seen one in my life, I was pretty surprised to see it in an urban environment. And, it was not as secretive in terms of its movement, parading around on the edge of the grass and digging through the dead leaves for a worm lunch.

Wonderful siting and photo. I may have to get downtown soon to see it, too!
