Very nice set Enrique. How can you tell the male from female? They look the same to me.

Thank! I should have said that I am guessing gender based on behavioral cues. But you are right, V. Rails do not appear to exhibit sexual dimorphism.

Great series, Enrique, and these are, indeed, beautiful birds, beautifully captured. What a privilege to watch them for a while. On my monitor, the colors seem very rich, but don't have the softness that I've seen in other images of this species. Maybe it's the light or maybe the colors heat up during breeding; either way, the detail and poses are fantastic!
