Water Rail

Observation - Water Rail. Description: This bird flew into the reed bed. I had no idea what it was to start with - I've never seen one in flight before. It landed, looked around, squealed like a pig (see picture 2) then disappeared, thus complying with its job description as a 'skulking crak

This bird flew into the reed bed. I had no idea what it was to start with - I've never seen one in flight before.
It landed, looked around, squealed like a pig (see picture 2) then disappeared, thus complying with its job description as a 'skulking crake,' so often seen in bird books.
