Thanks, Ann. There was a guy from Brooklyn there who said it was Clapper
Rail and got a good photo of it when it came out from behind the reeds.
Then when I checked my Peterson's Guide, it seemed to match the

power of suggestion (and intimidation of those honking-big bazooka
cameras!) Gotta always check region, no matter what! Thanks for the
