Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small and sneaky rail. Barred belly with a smudged orange-buff chest band. Reddish head with strong pale eyebrow. Makes a loud squeaking call. Usually sticks to dense cover near water, occasionally strutting around the edges or crossing paths. On small islands (e.g. Green Island, Lord Howe Island, Lady Elliot Island) it is extremely tame and abundant.
