No, Kansans, you can’t count the Grey-necked Wood-rail Aramides cajanea that may very well be wandering around Topeka. An individual of the species, which is native to South and Central America, is missing from the Topeka Zoo. His name is Ty so if you see an odd rail try addressing him and see if you get a response. If it responds to “Ty” then it is from the zoo but if not I say it is a wild bird and you can count it.
Nonsense. Count it anyway.
I like the title of this post…it infers Kansas never has rare birds. (nerd humor, I know). I hope they find Ty!
