[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Aramides cajanea, native to tropical lowland and mangrove forest, tropical swamps, and swamps of South America. They're shy and secretive, but will come out into the open if close to dense cover at the edge of mangroves or a swamp.

The wood rail is very vocal, especially at or before dawn. The Indians actually believed that part of this loud vocalisation was due to the bird farting.

This particular wood rail has a bit of its beak cut off, and is only about 1/5th of the length it should be.

Hi Josh,

Beautiful species, good colour.
Composition a little to much in the middle i think.

regards Gert

Hi Josh,
this is beautiful rail species and its great capture with fine details and sharpness. Nicely composed. Notes informative and good. Splendid colors. TFS, well done

Good one. Agree with Gert on the center issue, but the rest is just great - the concrete floor in the warm brown tones makes it special as a bg. Well done! Cheers, Klaus
