Red-legged Crake - Rallina fasciata marcel finlay 2017-03-01 Singapore central catchment reserve, Singapore (Singapore) (30 m) call, song -

calling from wet undergrowth, first call is Asian Brown Flycatcher then a growling girrr call which I believe to be the 'waking-up' call of the Red-legged crake as it is the second time I have heard this vocalisation a few seconds before the standard Red-Legged Crake call (which continues for the rest of this recording)

Red-legged Crake - Rallina fasciata marcel finlay 2017-04-24 Central Catchment Nature Reserve, Singapore (Singapore) (60 m) call, female, male, mating call?, song -

2 birds calling to each other about 6m apart either side of the boardwalk at the edge of the lake. The first bird heard is making the standard 'gogogogok' call. The second bird responds with a low-pitched unbird-like call similar to a sharp exhalation of breath which I have not heard before. This call and response continues for about 3 minutes before the second bird stops calling. The first bird continues with the 'gogogogok' before a short period of silence then makes a strong growling 'girrrrrr' call at 3:23 which is immediately followed by the second bird making the same call but louder and at a higher pitch. After that calling stopped. The birds were gradually moving towards each other but I was unable to observe if they met up as it was too dark. Perhaps this is a male-female encounter? (There are some sharp changes in volume in the recording as I turned the microphone through 180-degrees to focus on each bird in turn)
