The 18th was very wet, a White-browed Crake with 2 hatchlings was the most interesting sighting.
Slaty-breasted Rail. The movements of these birds are not well known in The Philippines. I have records on the farms from early May, mid-August (two consecutive years), late September, and late October regularly through to late November. That appears to indicate autumn passage and a regular winter population, but the lack of records from early December onwards is puzzling.
