Hi, I found this bird sadly deceased on my doorstep here in Brooklyn, close to shore, but near BK bridge and not any beach.  I cannot place what type of bird this is. Can someone help?

Rails are secretive birds of the swamps and marshes, which there are plenty in Brooklyn/Queens...I am sure it was heading to one of them. Sadly window strikes are very common during migration as birds see skyline reflections and try to fly right on through. Some birds just get temporarily stunned but most fair far worse.
