Virginia Rail

Rallus limicola aequatorialis

 

Laguna de San Pablo, Otavalo, Imbabura province, Ecuador.

 

This population is found around high Andean lakes from Colombia to Ecuador, and locally in coastal Peru. Its disjunct range has caused some authorities to split it as Ecuadorian Rail R. aequatorialis, though this not widely accepted due to similarities in plumage and voice.
