Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Dark, orange-and-black, barred crake. Deep red orange, with black wings, and bold black barring on the undersides. Occurs along the base of the Andes and locally in the Amazonian lowlands. Found in dense, wet secondary growth, especially low vegetation on river islands and wet grassy patches. Listen for its long, musical trill; springier than that of other crakes.
