Looks like possibly a virginia rail.

i see them quite often when duck hunting

They are a legal species you know. Don't have any idea about them as table fare

After all these years at the water front I should know that bird . I've seen many nice birds ( like the osprey today )  and others like yellow legs and coots etc. 

 That is the dead bird I posted , don't have any idea what killed it . They would be like eating the wood -kok , not much too them...

 

... also saw a couple of vultures & blue herons there ....speaking of herons , they are deadly hunters as well , not only eating fish but

gofers and large snakes . Check out the herons plucking gofers out of their holes on Utube.

...this one got this snake down the hatch ?  Wow !!    :o
