CommentI encountered this Buff-banded Rail one early morning, when the temperature was somewhat low. As the sun rose, the bird kept fanning out its wings as seen; I think this behaviour might be in order to present the largest possible surface area for the sun to warm it up. As the morning warmed, the bird continued its business in a more usual manner. Time of capture: 08:32
