    The street under the nest of the Pt. Edwards eagles is becoming a game trail. I have failed to get photos of a Douglas' squirrel or Townsend's chipmunk I have seen run across the street several times. Likewise, I was not quick enough to get a photo of Friday's young coyote.

    I did get a photo of Saturday's (6/17) deer herd.

    Wednesday evening (6/21) I photographed at the marsh what I believe is a juvie Virginia rail. It was in the same location off the #1 viewing platform where I usually photograph snipes. Going back through my old photos, I think it is the first rail I have seen at the marsh in five years. I know they are out there, I have just never been able to spot them.

    Taken with the 7DII + 100-400L II telephoto zoom.

    I am a little conflicted with my ID, as the bill does not appear to be as long and thin as the bills of adult Virginia rails that I have seen in photos. On the other hand, it appears to be too long and too thin to be the bill of a sora. I can't think of any other birds it could be, so I'll stick with a juvie Virginia until I hear otherwise.
