Photographer : © Prasad Ganpule
Location :Ranjitsagar Dam, Jamnagar, Gujarat, India
Date : 23 December 2017
English synonyms:
Bird Family :Rallidae - Rails, Crakes, Bush Hens, Watercock, Gallinules, Swamphens, Moorhens & Coots
Red Data Status :Least Concern
Remarks :This was found by Ashwin Trivedi, a birder from Jamnagar, a few weeks ago. I was lucky to see it on 23 December. While similar to Baillon's Crake Porzana pusila, the red base to the bill and the longer primary projection are diagnostic. A genuine rarity here. - PG
