Went out to check the motor when the care taker and I saw this slaty legged crake .

Observations

  1. Number observed: 1

    Details: As I was climbing down the lawn slope , a waterhen like bird was seen . White breasted waterhen was eleimnated based on the banding I was able to clearly see . Then it went towards a brighter area and then the nice red head was seen . The bird scuttled as very quickly and flew out of the compound and into a pear tree forest with a natural swamp near it . The care taker says she sees this bird now and then and comes at night near the tap to drink water and ‘ peck the ground ‘ . I’ve seen this bird only in glimpses before and not reported it so far but Thisbe time I had a fair enough look to ascertain it’s ID
