I saw and photographed the King Rail this morning (Monday 6/18/18) at about 7:00am. There were about 7 birders present at the time. We first heard the rail in the panne/protected area of the dunes, later it was seen along the cement wall, and photographed along the trail near the Cottonwoods. It was really moving around. I posted a few pics on Illinois Birding Network this morning. I also saw a report of it being seen in the Bird Sanctuary at 11:00am.
