White-Browed Crake of Kampung Sabak

7 June 2009, Kampung Sabak, Kelantan













To me all Wak-Wak (local name) should look like a waterhen. So when I saw this Wak-Wak it looked kind of strange. I hadn’t realised that there were so many types of marsh birds. Now I know that this is a Crake, a White-Browed Crake (porzana cinerea) to be exact. They are so difficult to spot in the grassy area. A Lifer.

Difficult to tell whether they are male or female.

In the natural habitat. Master of Hide & Seek.


  1. Madi,
    the first photograph of the White-Browed Crake is a great pose/composition.
