The clapper rail is one of the few birds that commonly have both genders deeply involved in brooding, including incubation and feeding of the young. It is also known as the marsh hen, salt-water marsh hen and in Mexico, as palmeteador. A sub-specie, the Yuma clapper rail (rallus longirostris yumanensis) is on the endangered species list. This rail lives primarily in Arizona and California.
