A very active, very visible family of Virginia Rails gave us quite a thrill this morning at the Montlake Fill, at the wooden footbridge over the s lough. There were two parents and seven babies in all--and we watched them skating around the lily pads on the s lough, then dashing across the road several times. The highlight was watching one baby struggle for several hilarious minutes as it tried to swallow a worm twice its size. They were in easy view for over an hour. Q uite a show.
