Ridgeway's rail

The Ridgway’s Rail is a near-threatened species unique to California’s coastal saltwater wetlands, a habitat mostly lost to waterfront developments and marinas. A small population breeds successfully at the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve near my home. Coastal saltwater wetlands exist where land meets the tides, and the rising sea level will further threaten these and other creatures that are dependent upon the wetlands. For more, click.
