Virginia Rail range

The Virginia Rail is the smallest rail when compared to the Clapper and King Rails. Although, it is very similar in appearance to these two mentioned rails. The Virgina Rail can be found in most marshes in North America, but because of its secretive nature and the fact it feeds at night, it is rarely seen. It has been reported seen as a very rare visitor in Cuba.
