"tick tick" call. Either R. elegans or R. longirostris. Habitat fits that of longirostris.

BNA: This recording contains the Primary Advertising Call of a male Clapper Rail (the monotonous, "kek" notes speeding up and slowing down). Based on range, this is in the zone of intergradation between R. l. crepitans and R. l. waynei (following BNA). See also Figure 1 of Massey and Zembal (1987. Vocalizations of the Light-footed Clapper Rail. J. Field Ornithol. 58: 32-40). (CAM - 5 April 2005)
