Virginia Rail, Abington Square Park

A Virginia Rail was found by Roy Tsao on Saturday in Abington Square Park at 12th Street and Eighth Avenue in New York City.  It alternated between being totally hidden to roaming the park looking for worms.  In the video, you see two earthworms being consumed.  This is a rare bird for Manhattan and to have it in a very small pocket park was highly unusual.  These little parks continue to amaze us with what they can attract during migration.
