Should have noted regarding Irwin Prairie...

There is no parking along Irwin Road where the Yellow rails have been calling. There's a parking lot for the preserve along Bancroft Street just west of Irwin Road. The boardwalk that starts from the parking lot will take you back to Irwin Road.

At least two, more likely three, Yellow rails were calling at Irwin Prairie this morning. The pattern was the same as two days ago - I arrived just after 5:30 but did not hear them until just before 6:15. The Yellow rails called without a break for about ten minutes then more sporadically. They were again on the east side of Irwin Road but only about 100-125 yards north of Dorr Street.

Todd Haggard gets the credit for discovering a single bird Thursday evening, April 26.

Numerous Virginia rails and Soras are also present, and Wilson's snipes are very active in the predawn hours with their courtship displays.
