Subject: Possible Common Gallinule? Julian Wetlands

While checking nest boxes at the Julian Wetland this morning, I heard one series of calls that I believe was a Common Gallinule.

Time was approximately 9:30 am, in the NE section of the wetland. A loud "Kuck,kuck....." type call, descending in pitch and tempo near the end. Total call lasted about 6 seconds in length. I waited for several minutes but it was not repeated. I've listened to other marsh bird calls, but this is the one that comes the closest.
