Brown Wood Rail singing in the Chocó forests of Ecuador – Luke Browne (2013)

The Brown Wood Rail (Aramides wolfi) is a poorly known bird from western Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. Because of extensive habitat loss,it’s considered vulnerable to extinction with less than 4,000 individuals remaining. Here, we recorded an individual singing in front of a motion-activated camera trap at Bilsa Biological Station, one of the largest remaining pieces of Chocó forest in western Ecuador. Bilsa is located within Machine-Chindul Ecological Reserve, Esmeraldas province, Ecuador.

The Karubian lab at Tulane university has described the nesting biology, home range, and habitat use of this poorly-known bird.

This observation is registered in iNaturalist.
