Spotted RailPardirallus maculatus maculatus
Laguna El Oconal, Pasco, Peru - December 2 2019
In 2003 a Spotted Rail ran behind my back at Costanera Sur in Argentina. It was such an annoying start to an otherwise successful tour, and I have been longing to repair that incident ever since. So at last, I got my revenge at Laguna El Oconal. This photo was taken from a 6 meter high platform and the bird was almost right below.
