On a birding walk with the Benjamin Goss Bird Club at the Vernon Marsh a pair of Virginia Rails were found. They were hanging out near a nest area. We did not hang around long but I did take a couple of quick images to share. They remained in the grasses near waters edge. A fun time with some great birders. Images were taken on May 28, 2016.
