11/2/18 Silver Sands Clapper Rail Video, Saltmarsh Sparrow

Video of juvenile Clapper Rail at Silver Sands on 11/2/18




11/2/18 Silver Sands Clapper Rail, Saltmarsh Sparrow.  Both seen from middle of parking lot boardwalk.  Identified as Saltmarsh because of thin, distinct streaking on breast and flanks in contrast to blurry streaking on Nelson's Sparrow.
