.............And a Rail in Every Garage

   Herbert Hoover's 1928 presidential campaign has been credited with the prosperity-promising slogan, 'A chicken in every pot and a car in every garage'. He could have secured the votes of the birding community by offering what Mason County's Dave Dister found this morning.... a rail in every garage.  
  Here's how Dave described it " This morning as I pulled my car out of the garage, I noticed an odd shape in one of the garage windows.  It was a Virginia Rail! What the Hay! A couple of days before this, I got a call from Tim Granger who told me there was a Sora in a Manistee area garage."

Still waiting for my rails (that's right plural), I have a two-rail garage.
