Default Buff-banded Rail

Buff-banded Rail (Gallirallus philippensis)
Spotted this little beauty making a dash for the cover of the reeds this morning.

Mike, great capture on this rail who is very shy and elusive.

Thank you, this is only my second sighting of this bird and the only photo I managed to catch, I took a few more but all I got was out of focus glimpses of it as it went in and out of the reeds. It is almost three years since my first sighting not far from this spot and it is a spot I pass by on foot or bike 3 or 4 times a week.
