But there is one possible erratum: the last photo in Gizmodo, purportedly
of the Island Rail in hand, shows a 'spotted' rail (like Black Rail)
while all other Inaccessible Island Rail images I've found lack spots.
There seems to be some Gizmodo mixup here. Perhaps this last photo is of a
Black Rail.
