Endangered Birds Released
This photo provided by the San Diego Zoo shows Michael Mace, left, San Diego Zoo Safari Park curator of birds, releasing one of seven light-footed clapper rails in the 915-acre San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve on Thursday Aug. 16, 2012 in San Diego. The endangered marsh birds were hatched at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. More than 300 light-footed clapper rails have been successfully bred and released since 2001 as a result of a joint breeding and reintroduction program by Team Clapper Rail.
