Small waterhen with an erect black tail (no white edges) resembling that of a domestic chicken. Note pale green base to the bill with a yellow tip and a red spot, bright red-pink legs, and pale spots on flanks. Frequents locations around inland wetlands, and is usually seen on land rather than in the water. Can occur in large numbers. Hard to approach, and when disturbed runs away fast. Tends to be less vocal than other waterhen species.
