Marsh Big Mouth


Author(s):
Abstract:
Six rail species inhabit North Carolina, with the king rail the largest and the black rail the smallest. Earley describes the clapper rail, one of four rails that breed in the state. Rails are often called marsh hens because of their salt marsh habitats and chicken-like build and are more easily heard than seen.
