A furtive and hard to see rail of tall & damp grassy areas, marshes and flooded rice fields. When undisturbed, it can be seen walking in the open as it feeds on insects in grass and soil.

Our tours will encounter this uncommon species in marshy areas around Medellín Airport (in Rionegro), Cameguadua marsh (Caldas), Cerro Montezuma & Laguna de Sonso.
