Species Description
The Gray-Necked Woodrail is a common member of the Rallidae family, found mostly in the tropical/subtropical swamps and forests of Central and South America. It is a wading bird about the size of a chicken, and uses its long legs to easily move about the shallow water, where it forages for crabs, mollusks and small amphibians. The Gray-Necked Woodrail will also eat seeds, berries and insects; it has been known to follow army ant swarms to capture escaping insects and small vertebrates.
