This is a continuation of the family's calls on ML167622311
Family of 6 (4 still-black long-legged chicks) and one more adult in another location. As I stood quietly on the trail by the pond I could hear the family approaching in the vegetation. The first one in the group, an adult, came within a few inches of my boot before it realized there was a human present. Then it squawked and rushed across the trail to cattails and marsh on the other side. It was followed by two chicks and a second adult and a third chick. Finally a fourth chick crossed the trail quite a long way from the rest of the family. I had left my camera in the car and just had recording equipment. Afterwards I went back to the car and got the camera, but the rails stayed out of sight after that.
