Greetings IBETers. My house in North Aurora backs up to a decent quality wetland with mixed habitat of rushes, cattails, swampish habitat and open water. We have many species of waterfowl, egrets, herons, cranes, snipe etc. visit during the year.
For the last five days I've been hearing a quite possible King Rail calling. I have to act quick when the bird calls but I did capture a short video with half decent audio. I've listened many times to the Sibley recordings on my phone app and they line up quite closely. If those of you with expertise on this species would like to review this video and help identify this bird, it would be much appreciated. I can either text or send the clip to you via email.
