White-browed Crake - Porzana cinerea Amar-Singh HSS 2019-10-30 Kinta District (near Tambun), Negeri Perak, Perak (Malaysia) (60 m) adult, call -

I met a pair of very accommodating White-browed Crakes today and was able to spend a long time watching and recording different calls. This is a recording of calls I hear the least often. I am increasingly convinced is a territorial call. It is a long call lasting 7-9 seconds (6 recordings) and is best described as a trill (or a horse neighing). Often both partners in the pair join together in making this complex call. It starts loud and continues like this for 4-5 seconds before winding down slowly and repeated later. This call is the one most often recorded for this species because it is ‘dramatic’ and loud. The other calls are much softer and less noticed.
