California Clapper Rail (Rallus longirostris obsoletus) - Endangered



The California clapper rail measures 13–19
inches from bill to tail. That males are slightly larger than
females is the only difference between them. 


 WHEN: Sunny day at about 3 p.m. The other day when I saw it, about the same time, and a little further up by the boardwalk.

WHERE: Right at Rail Alley. Lucy Evans Baylands Nature Interpretive Center, 2775 Embarcadero Way, Palo Alto, CA 94303, USA

Endangered California Clapper Rail. Only 1500 left.


They have a sweet, subdued personality. A little nervous, but usually sit there.

You can see the Rail on the right hand side. This is Rail Alley.

The last time I saw the Rail he was under this boardwalk on the bridge side.

The Rails are often seen under this boardwalk
