Comments

larger bird, was expecting Virginia Rail at the site. According to Kimball Garrett, heavy, thick-based bill and extensive pale olive-gray edges to the upperparts rule out the more expected Virginia Rail

Observation details

There may have been two, or just one very fast-moving rail. Too tough to tell as bird(s) would absolutely dissolve once in reeds.
