This morning there were the usual Clapper Rails at Egypt Lane in Fairhaven. One kekking constantly on the sea side and the other on the fenced side doing a few half-hearted keks. Then an orange one, that we thought was a King Rail showed up on the fenced side and for the next few hours cavorted in a friendly manner with the Clapper.
I eBirded the bird as a King, but looking at the photos, the bird seems only the same size as the Clapper and its face has some gray. Last year there was a definite King with clear orange throat and was bigger than the Clappers.
