Is it wearing a crown and robe?

Looking for better looks at the King Rail, I met many people from as far away as New York this morning, and I want to share more info on the location for those who may not be familiar with the area.
For those using GPS, paste the following info your device: 41.2527,-72.5438
The bird can be seen from the blind building at the small marsh which is between the Hammonasset Nature Center field/Lot and the Willard's Island paved lot. This is in the East side of the park. The marsh is only about 100' x 225' in size, and the bird has been keeping to the East side each time I've seen it. The last looks at around 9:15 AM had the bird less than 20 feet away from the blind.
It is very muddy in the entry to the blind area, so boots are recommended!
