crakes

A comparison between the adult Ruddy-breasted Crake and the immature Band-bellied Crake. Under certain lighting conditions, the Ruddy-breasted Crake ‘s reddish chestnut underparts may look a bit faced, but normally the colouration between the two birds differ. The fully adult Band-bellied Crake will have a stronger chestnut colouration below but still not as intense as the Rusty-breasted. The strength of the bill also differs, as does the bands across the belly.
