Buff-Banded Rail

One of the sneaky intruders. In addition to prowling endlessly for an opening into the restaurant they would launch tactical strikes into the considerably less well-defended bar. It's actually kind of a cool opportunity to see these birds so close. Rails are often notoriously reclusive and difficult to observe. Heron Island, Great Barrier Reef.
