On 7/27/20 I saw one juvenile /*Sora*/ and one adult /*Virginia rail */in Coast Casey forebay in Mountain View. The Sora was seen 5 times, the Virginia rail only once and very briefly. While watching for rails saw two /*Common yellowthroa*/t (1M,1F) heard an unidentified bird in the reeds-passerine type. Also saw the growing avocet chick nearby.
Unfortunately the other location where I saw Virginia rails in previous years is no more: While walking past the FAA antenna at WTCP in Sunnyvale on 7/24/20 I encountered heavy duty dredging equipment which removed all the vegetation on that side of the channel.
