Elusive bird, the eastern black rail, is threatened by rising sea levels: ?They haven?t been seen in Virginia since 2017?

https://www.dailypress.com/news/environment/dp-nw-eastern-black-rail-threatened-sea-level-rise-20201007-6zgslsl5j5b6pnoowht7rvgu7e-story.html


n this June 2017 photo taken in the ACE Basin region of South Carolina and provided by the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, a male black rail offers an insect to a female as part of their courtship behaviors. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service declared the Eastern black rail a threatened species on Wednesday, Oct. 7, 2020, but stopped short of the stronger protections some environmentalists were seeking for the elusive bird now imperiled by habitat destruction, sea level rise, and the increasing frequency and intensity of storms with climate change.
