Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Chickenlike rail seen at the edge of various wetlands, even in close proximity to human habitations. Uniformly dark gray below with a brown back, and red legs and eyes. Similar to Blackish Rail, but has a red spot at the base of the lower mandible, a blue patch at the base of the upper mandible, and a dark (not white) throat. The voice is a squeaky repetition of “truie, truie,” which can be heard all day.
