Another Crazy Crake

Following on from the Red-legged Crake that was hanging around Chulalonkorn University back in February, another mega Crake was found at Suan Rotfai on Saturday by birders visiting to see the Ruddy Kingfisher.

This time the bird in question was a Slaty-legged Crake, a seldom-seen forest bird that is best looked for around Kaeng Krachan.  I was out of town for the weekend, so I had to play it cool and take it in on my way to work this morning.  Fortunately the bird was still present and ludicrously easy to see, feeding in the open and occasionally taking cover in a flowerbed and a storm drain!
