this is the first of its kind found north of mexico. Its closest range to new mexico is in Sinaloa, Mexico 600 miles south of here. the bird was found on 7/713 by Matt Daw. It took me 3 days to see it (i arrived from cleveland during the only period it went without being seen), then the rail was very active and stayed where i could see it, for the most part.
ran across road
In kayak by shallow water (around 1-2 feet) We were just moving into the channel by a deeper spot when the water by us exploded and I saw the back half of a very large fish. Then shortly after we saw a giant fish 5+ feet jump completely out of the water.
