Black-tailed Crake

This year the Black-tailed Crake has been showing very well at Doi Inthanon. A bit before dusk a pair will come out of the reedbed and see if there has been any rice/bread put out for them.
They have been habituated this way and one can view the birds from close range.

Besides this site there are only one or two sites with these birds in Northern Thailand so watching a rarity like this is quite special.

Nice shots of a great bird ! We missed this one when we went to Doi Inthanon a few years ago.
