Since King Rail was the (ahem) topic of some discussion, I thought that these pix might be of some interest . . . To my knowledge,

sightings of baby rails are rare, and pix are scarcer than hens' teeth!

Great photos taken in the last week at Quivira by staff:
King Rail, adults with a brood of 10 (27 June 2017)
Wilson's Phalarope, adult male with brood of 3 (5 July 2017)

The Rail photo is posted on Facebook (, and the Phalarope photo will follow later.

I love Quivira National Wildlife Refuge. When I lived in Stafford I went there two or three times a week, just to clear my head and meditate.

The Wildlife Drive/NE 170th areas have shown considerable drying. Shorebirds are present in pretty good numbers, but viewing is a challenge. Probably the best area is the far west side of the Wildlife Drive, especially in the morning (better sun angle).
