The Washington Gap Analysis Project created breeding bird maps only. The non-breeding birds (e.g., wintering, pelagic (coastal), and birds expanding their ranges) are represented only by NatureMapping sightings.
The Washington Gap Analysis Project could not find any historical research records (i.e., Breeding Bird Atlas, Breeding Bird Survey, Bird Banding and Recovery) for 73 species of birds. The Yellow Rail is one of the species.
NatureMapping observations reported by townships throughout the year.
This Rail winters in Florida and along the east and south-east coasts. It breeds mostly in the Canadian provinces with the exception of British Columbia.Text edited by Gussie Litwer
