[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The buff-banded rail (Gallirallus philippensis) is a distinctively coloured, medium-sized rail of the rail family, Rallidae. They are scavengers and eat pretty well anything that they find. This means that they do wander around peopled areas looking for human dumped food scraps.

Lovely sharp photo of this interesting bird Ian. Glad to see you back.

Hi Ian,

The vegetation is framing well the bird. The point of view is showing the details of the Buff-banded Rail. There is a good contrast between the colors of the picture. Have a nice day.


Hello Ian,
Rail species are very shy bird here in South Africa. You were lucky. Very nice displaying colors with good details. Like this bird.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice weekend,
