The Ruddy-breasted Crake or Porzana fusca, is also called Ruddy Crake; a waterbird from the rail and crake family of Rallidae. Breeding at swampy areas across South Asia, Indian subcontinent and up to the south of China, Japan, and Indonesia. It is a very territorial bird and secretive always hiding in the grass and bushes when frightened. 

When we found this bird at Lam Lukha, I thought I would never see it since it really liked to hide and for it to come out was not frequent. I had myself positioned flat on the ground covered with grass and I wore camouflage clothes and i waited for a long time; all the bird did was just skip around and walk pass me. i worked hard on this coming back for another day just to get the right shots.
