White-winged Crake

The only breeding records are from highland marshes of central Ethiopia. It is also a very local and apparently summer visitor to highland marshes south of the equator. It is yet unknown whether the northern and southern populations are distinct, but their physical features appear identical. The birds are however not resident in any of the few known sites, sometimes departing after as little as six weeks when conditions turn unfavourable.

The White-winged Crake is classified as Endangered (EN), considered to be facing a very high risk of extinction in the wild.
