Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A tiny rail found in dense grasslands, often far from water. Extremely difficult to see, but striking plumage renders this species unmistakable: look for warm orange crown and breast, bold white spotting on upperparts, and pink legs. Far more often heard than seen. Listen for a long descending trill with a slightly musical quality, and a harsh growling call. Patchy distribution from Costa Rica to southern Brazil.
