White-spotted Flufftail 111113 Sarothrura pulchra

We heard several of these in the grounds of the Rondo Retreat, Kakamega Forest, Kenya while we were sitting watching a Grey-winged Robin-chat. This was the only flufftail that showed as it wandered over our boots and on down the track. I had the auto ISO feature set but the max ISO of 3200 was giving a shutter speed of 1/100 second that was a bit on the slow side for this fast moving small rail. Fortunately this shot came out better than I could have hoped for.
