Wood-Rails are in the same family, Rallidae, as rails, crakes,
gallinules, moorhens, coots, watercocks, etc.
Wood-rails are approximately chicken-sized waterbirds often seen wading in shallow edges of well-wooded or marsh-rimmed rivers and ponds in many parts of tropical America.
The Grey-necked Wood-Rail ranges from Mexico, south into southern South America. There is a lot of geographic variation and my study shows a Central American form. It is a gouache watercolour vignette, approximately life-size, on paper.
