Clapper Rail In Front Of Proposed Soccer Complex

On Oct 7, 2006, brightpathvideo filmed more clapper rail sightings on Gallinas Creek, San Rafael, CA. This time, one was spied feeding on the upper reaches of the creek near the Frank Llyod Wright Civic Center and (this is important) right in front of the proposed 4 acre indoor soccer facility off the west part of the north split of the creek at GPS  N38.00.49.9, W

Pile driving, outdoor lighting, thousands of car trips, bridge alterations and ever present loud noise levels will have a deleterious effect on this, the bay's largest concentration of federally endangered clapper rails.
