The Little Crake (Porzana parva) is a very small waterbird of the family Rallidae.

Their breeding habitat is reed beds in Europe, mainly in the east, and just into western Asia. They nest in a dry location in reed vegetation, laying 4-7 eggs. This species is migratory, wintering in Africa.

At 17-19 cm length, they are slightly smaller than Spotted Crakes, from which they are readily distinguished by the lack of dark barring and white spots on the flanks. They are more similar to Baillon's Crake.

The Little Crake has a short straight bill, yellow with a red base. Adult males have mainly brown upperparts and blue-grey face and underparts. They have green legs with long toes, and a short tail which is barred black and white underneath.

A wonderful super close-up of this Little Crake. The colors are unbelievable! I love the eye and the green and red beak. The golden tones of the feathers are beautiful. A superb profile composition with the blue sky as background.
