Subject: [ia-bird] Record Early Yellow Rail (no sighting)

The Iowa State University bird collection received a specimen of a Yellow
Rail found freshly dead near Ames on 4/3/2017 (photo attached, record early
by one day). Prior to this the three record early dates for YERA were 4
April 1991, 10 April 1998, and 13 April 1983.

Good birding,

Kevin Murphy, Ames
