"One of the most elusive birds in an elusive family, the tiny Black Rail is infamously difficult to see..." allaboutbirds.org
ARTIST: Juliet Whitsett
COLOR PALETTE SAMPLED FROM IMAGES OF THE BLACK RAIL
According to Texas Parks & Wildlife Magazine:
"If a bird version of the American Idol singing competition were ever created, this species would win for having such big pipes in a tiny frame. The black rail can really belt out its kee-kee-do calls while hidden in the marsh. This bird, not much larger than a baseball, is the smallest of the six species of rail that occur regularly in Texas. It’s one tiny package...The black rail’s population has declined tremendously over the last century in the U.S. and especially along the Atlantic coast, mostly because of diminishing coastal grassy habitat and marshes."
