Regarding juvenile Virginia Rails, if viewing one is of interest to
Eastside Seattle birders, I'd like to mention that my son and I have seen
one twice in the last two weeks at Marymoor Park in Redmond, just slightly
north-west of the viewing platform, on the waterside of the walkway,
precisely here: 47.65311567249418, -122.10724099849322.

This young bird was rather oblivious to onlookers, obliging us with a
several-minute show of cuteness. A few photos are in one of our recent
checklists: https://ebird.org/checklist/S90760749
