Bending to the Task
Photograph by Tim Laman

A California clapper rail hunts for crabs, worms, and fish in the Corte Madera Ecological Reserve north of San Francisco. The bird is listed as endangered, largely because of habitat loss: More than 90 percent of California's original wetlands have been destroyed through the expansion of farms and cities.
