This near mythical species and rather good looking rallid is surprisingly neither shy nor reclusive, on the contrary it appears to be confident, conspicuous and well accustomed to human presence due to a non persecutory co-existence with lake fishermen. This makes it a very “gettable” target species, if anyone is willing to invest the time and effort involved in getting to the right areas. More
