The Baillon’s Crake or Porzana pusilla is a very small waterbird coming from the Rallidae family. It is breeding in Europe and across Asia. They also used to breed in Britain in the Mid-19th century but the western European population decline due to drainage of wet lands since they are waterbirds. With a lot of conservation efforts the north-western Europe mainly in Germany and Netherlands recovered.

They nest at wet sedge bogs with four to eight eggs. This species is migratory wintering in east Africa and south Asia and especially Thailand. It is also a resident breeder in Africa and Australia.
