Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Uncommon to rare summer migrant from winter grounds in Africa. Breeds in wet sedge marshes and bogs; migrants can be in any marshy habitat. Usually retiring and rarely seen, but can be confiding. Tiny, with short wings (long on Little Crake), and short, greenish bill that lacks red base. Face and underparts slaty gray on adult, with barred flanks (unbarred on Little); juvenile darker and more extensively barred below than juvenile Little Crake.
