Slaty-legged Crake

Latin Name : Rallina eurizonoides

Site Name : Labuan

Photographer : FONG, Yi Yeh

Date : 2018-09-06

Notes :
Mr. Fong Yi Yeh, a resident birder from Labuan saw a crake at Jalan Kelab Golf Labuan on 6 Spetember 2018, the crake looked frail after a storm the night before. It had since recovered and was released afterwards.

The crake is a Slaty-legged Crake (Rallina eurizonoides) likely of the race telmatophila.

This is first record for Sabah and also a first for Borneo, congratulations go to Mr. Fong who has also allowed the images to be uploaded to BBI for public record.
