Barred-rail

Gallirallus torquatos

Description:

Spotted this at front of my place. It is actually feeding its young. This is known locally in my place as "Tikling". This species is the source of the Filipino cultural dance "Tinikling".

Habitat:

This large and striking-looking species is often seen on the edges of the overgrown areas close to the rice fields rather than in the rice itself. While it is shy and will dart into cover at the slightest hint of danger, it is conspicuous and relatively easy to find.

Notes:

My front place is a grassland type of ecosystem.
