Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small, brightly-colored crake of wet patches in dense forests; occasionally can be found in parks and edge areas with suitable habitat. Brown with an orange head and zebra-striped sides. Bright red patch of bare skin around the eye gives it a somewhat startled appearance. Candy-red (instead of dark) legs distinguish it from Slaty-legged Crake, and dainty, smaller-billed appearance distinguish it from Ruddy-breasted and Band-bellied Crakes. Generally shy and unobtrusive, moving quietly through wet vegetation. Tends to be difficult to see, but generally common and reliable in Singapore and some areas of Thailand.
