Observation details

Responded vocally to played Least Bittern calls, and when I realized it was right under the tower, I switched to its grunt call and crept down the stairs. The tiny rail (about half the size of Clapper) appeared soon after and foraged under the tower in full view only about ten feet away before moving silently back into the marsh.
